Actually I used to know a Candida and I think it's rather gracious and airy.

It means thrush. Exactly what you don't want when you're a teenage girl.

It means "white" in Latin.

It'd be a nice name, if it wasn't for the whole thrush thing...

Thought we might call our dd2 Mirena cos it was that failure that caused her to be ...

Mirena Candida?

Mirena Chlamydia?

Mirena Ciprofloxacin? (I had to take it a lot when pg for kidney infections? Too health conscious perhaps???)

history of candida
my Latin dictionary has some lovely meanings for candidus/a - shining white, beautiful, brilliant, dazzling. Shame about the fungus nicking the name! There even appears to be a Saint Candida.. ironic really grin

Sounds a bit yeasty to me...

Oh no! Google it, and you get pages of treatment options.

sweetkitty Thu 19-Jun-08 04:57:09

No no no don't call your precious DD after a yeast that causes thrush

You could go the whole hog and give her the proper latin Candida albicans

Candida Doyle

in Pulp

And her sister, Cystitis

Candice is nice

Candida Crewe, author and recovering anorexic/bulimic.

Candida Lycett Green - daughter of former poet laureate John Betjemen

How about Hernia or Gonorrhea -just open your medical dictionary for further inspiration. Lots of popular ailments sound like Shakespearian princesses.

HIDEOUS. I can't believe some poor women really have this name.
