It is a name for the Greek moon goddess Artemis. I think it is a feminine and pretty name, and highly due for a revival in my opinion. I like the nicknames Cyndy and Cindel too.

Meaning "woman from Kynthos," Cynthia was an epithet of the Greek goddess Artemis, referring to the fact that she was born on the mountain of Kynthos on the island of Delos. It wasn't used as a name in English until the Renaissance.
