bindi F

latin
(BELLUS) (*BADWO LINDI / LINTA > BETLINDIS) (*BERHTAZ LINDI / LINTA)

This is a feminine given name of disputed origin, apparently coined from Italian “bella”, from the Latin root "bellus" meaning "beautiful" and often used as a pet name such as Isabella, Annabella, and Maybelle. Alternatively, it may be derived from the Old High German name "Betlindis", meaning "a fair battle or flexibility to organize the battle". The name, however, seems almost certainly derived from the Germanic word, precisely from two elements: "*berhtaz" (light, bright, clear, shining one) and "lindi / linta" (weak, soft, tender, mild / lime-tree, linden tree / protective shield of linden wood).
