"Love my name my dad named me Belinda after the movie Johnny Belinda I just now started meeting other Belindas in the last 10 years and I'm 59 now" Mar. 15, 2017:
"Belinda is a beautiful name just as it's meaning states. It is feminine, unique, evokes mystery and softness. It also carries a youthful quality. True it gets mixed up with similar sounding names, but that's just because it's such a rare name that no one expects to hear it - another plus!" Jul. 29, 2016:
"I really like my name Belinda. It is a fairly common name but is not very popular. I have only met one other girl called Belinda in my lifetime and I am 29 years old! I love my nick names; Bel, Bella, Bels, B and Bidi. They are all nice. I was named after the model Belinda Green. Also Bella and Linda mean beautiful in many languages. It's just a lovely name."

"i love it, i like the name belle and love linda. <3" Jun. 11, 2009:
"My name's Belinda and i'm 20. I like have a strong, respectable name, but when i want, i can make it fun, with nick names like Bindi or Bin! It can get a little frustrating with people thinking i said Glenda, or worse... Melinda. I know it's only one letter - but it makes all the difference! Belinda is much nicer :)" Oct. 21, 2008:
"Belinda is my name and I think its a rather nice name people with my name usually have a good sense of humor and are shy yet study hard" Apr. 2, 2006:
"My name is Belinda, and I *love* it. It's never been a common name and the only problems I have are saying "I'm Belinda" because it often comes out as "Melinda," but really, I don't see it as a big problem. I read in one place that the meaning and roots of the name are of Babylon mythology and a latin meaning of "Beautiful snake," which i at first thought was weird, but then I found that it was coined at at a time when snakes were a sacred symbol of wisdom and immortality. I really do love my name, and figure, if men named George/John can have a George/John II as their son, why can't I have a daughter named Belinda? ;-)" Feb. 1, 2006:
"I am 31yrs and my name is Belinda. I absolutley love my name and wouldnt change it for anything! I sometimes get called Bel or Bella which is fine by me and alot of people think that it is an Italian name. I think the name Belinda is getting less popular, not sure why? I was named after actress Belinda Lee." Dec. 23, 2005:

"My name is Belinda and I am 70 years old I really didn?t like my name as a child because everyone was always calling me Brenda,Linda, or the worst Melinda. In college a professor pointed out to me that one of the origins of my name was Bella meaning beautiful in Italian,since then I have come to appreciate the rarity of the name . Many of my friends call me Bea ,but most still call me Belinda." Apr. 21, 2018:
"My name is Belinda and I too was named after Belinda Lee. I disliked my name while growing up because no one else had the same name. But as an adult I love it." Mar. 5, 2018:
"I too was named after the original movie Johnny Belinda. I hated it when growing up because it was different and I could never get anything with my name on it right off the shelf. Then my new uncle called me Bella the very first day I met him. That is what my grand children now call me and it is now the most beautiful name to me." Jul. 26, 2017:
