Zaida is also encountered as a female name in the Spanish-speaking Caribbean and parts of the United States with Cuban and Puerto Rican populations such as Florida and New York. In Spanish history, the name is especially known in reference to Zaida of Seville, an 11th Century exile Muslim princess who was the mistress (or, by some theories, the wife and queen) of King Alfonso VI of Castile.
