  1. Linda says:

    The name Linda is of germanic origin and was introduced in Spain later on. “Lind” means mild/gentle/soft in German.
    It also refers to the basswoodtree (German: Linde), which was treated as the tree of love (heart shaped leaves), protection (shields were formed from the wood) and was usually in the center of the village.
    Lindwurm was the Germanic word for dragon (“lind” in this case meaning bendy, “wurm” meaning dragon, they were pictured to be snake-like).
    “Lindern” in contemporary German means soothe/ease (pain).
