KýNTHOS > KYNTHíA

This name derives from the Greek “kynthos (Κύνθος) kynthia (Κυνθία)”, meaning “woman from Kynthos”. Cynthia was originally an epithet of the Greek goddess of the moon, Artemis, who according to legend, was born on Mount “kynthios”, a mountain on the island of Delos. Selene, the Greek personification of the Moon, and the Roman Diana (by way of their identification with Artemis) were also sometimes called "Cynthia". The English diminutive form “Cindy” had also a success as a proper name, making it among the top 100 new-born Americans between 1953 and 1973.
