Lucinda as a girl's name is a variant of the Latin for Lucy meaning "light." In mythology, Lucine was the Roman goddess of childbirth, the giver of first light to the newborn. The name was popular in the 18th century but has since fallen way out of the top 1,000 baby names charts. Surely it’s about time for this Roman myth and traditional Latin name to make a revival? If you’re a fan of mythology or looking for an obscure name to pay homage to your Italian roots, Lucinda is a more than fitting choice.
