As an English name, it came into use after George Bernard Shaw's play 'Candida' (1898). Candida originates in Latin language and means "white, clear". Candida was a play by George Bernard Shaw, as well as the name of a Spanish nun and saint. In the United States it is not a very usual feminine given name.
