"Light of the World"

Clarimond Origin and Meaning

The name Clarimond is a girl's name meaning "Light of the World".

Clarimond is related to the Occitan name Esclarmonde, and is probably the more wearable of the two variations.

Seventeenth century French novelist Nicolas des Escuteaux used the name for the eponymous heroine of his novel, Clarimond et Antonide.

It's a very rare name, but with Claire and Clara in favor, Clarimond could fit right in.
