Name Meaning

Derivative of Lucia , with the addition of the productive suffix -inda. The formation is first found in Cervantes's Don Quixote ( 1605 ), but was not much in use in the 17th century except as a literary name. Lucinde was used by both Molière (in Le Médecin malgré lui, 1665 ) and Friedrich von Schlegel (in his novel Lucinde, 1799 ). It enjoyed considerable popularity in England in the 18th century, and has been in use ever since.
