Supposedly of Greek origin, it is considered to some to be the Old English spelling, and hence the correct one. It has many meanings, usually refering to beauty and mystery.

If a person named Malinda encounters another person who has their name, the first question is always "How do you spell it?" followed by a smug look if the other person spells it Melinda. In fact, most Malindas will tolerate being called Melissa, Matilda, Malaria, etc, so long as their real name is spelled correctly.
"Dude, that Malinda girl sure is hot, but she punched me when I spelled her name wrong."

Get a Malinda mug for your cat Yasemin.
The name of a woman who you never mess with because she has a heart of pure gold. She is beautiful and guys want to date her but she doesn't want them.
She is a sensitive soul and loves true companionship. Not a party girl but would rather be happier reading a good book.
Malinda is so beautiful and mysterious
