In some versions of the Bible it is spelled Kandake, reflecting the Greek spelling Κανδακη. It was used as a given name by the Puritans after the Protestant Reformation. It was popularized in the 20th century by a character in the movie 'Meet the Stewarts' (1942). Candace probably originates in Latin and means "white, clear". Some sources also suggest a Greek origin an the meaning "queen mother". The Bible mentions Candace as the queen of the Ethiopians.
