Very cute AND elegant, I wonder if there are any little Glindas out there in real life? I hope so, I doubt my SO will let me use it though, he hasn't seen Wicked nor even watched the wizard of oz in years and will more then likely think it more a children's character name and not a suitable "real-person" name :(
*of course this from the man that likes Harriet and Agnes but I digress
**not saying Harriet or Agnes are bad just not my cup of tea

This is actually a very pretty name! It would be on my list if it weren't for the teasing potential that comes along with Glinda the good witch.
