Cindy was originally a pet or diminutive form of Cynthia. This is an ancient Greek name (Kynthia) meaning "from Mount Kynthos." It was associated with the virgin goddess Artemis (Diana to the Romans) who was said to have been born on Mount Kynthos on the Greek island of Delos. The actual name Kynthos is even older, and its meaning is unknown.

Cynthia was later spelled with a "c" by the Romans - there are a number of Roman love poems addressed to a Cynthia, and it was considered a very romantic name in England in the 18th century.

Occasionally Cindy was used as a pet name for Lucinda. LIke other variations (Lucille, Lucy, Lucia) this comes from a feminine form of the old Roman Lucretius; all these names come from the Latin word "lux" meaning light.

By the way, Cindy has nothing to do with Cinderella! THat name has quite a different origin.
