National Linda Day is annually observed on May 17. It is a day to honour everyone with the name Linda. It is primarily a female name, of German origin, and derived from the term ‘Linde’; however, it has become associated with the German word ‘Lind,’ which means’soft’ or ‘tender.’ Over time, its appeal was bolstered by the neo-Latin (Italian, Spanish, or Portuguese) word ‘Linda’, which is the feminine form of ‘Lindo’ and means ‘beautiful,’ ‘attractive,’ or ‘cute’ in Spanish and Portuguese, and ‘clean’ in Italian. The variant spelling of the name is ‘Lynda.’
