Spanish term or phrase: Dindo / Dinda
Hello - Buenos Dias,

I was wondering what a proper English translation for Spanish "dindo (masculine)" and "dinda (feminine)" would be? Is it some kind of variation of 'linda"?.
Any help with a translation would really be appreciated.

I cannot find the word in regular Spanish dictionaries but some Spanish speakers obviously use it. The word is found on numerous internet sites. Below are some examples of its use which appear in SpotBoricua.com, a Puerto Rican Spanish language forum:

1) Mi drangoncito dindo; Mi tío dindo; Mi helmanita dinda; Mi sobrinita dinda.

2) "Bienvenida y espero que la pases bien."
"Ahy que dinda!"

3) "Si! Calladita te ves más dinda ok..."

4) "Cuándo fué la ultima vez que te hablaron dindo?"

Thanks again for the help!

Sincerely,

Brian Costello

agree  Y. Peraza: Nunca he oído Dindo ni Dinda. Es raro que sea un typo, porque la D y la L están bien lejos en el teclado... Pero no puedo pensar otra cosa, vistos tus ejemplos, brian1.

agree  Cinnamon Nolan: Tampoco lo he oido, pero así quedaría bien en los ejemplos. Quizá sean variantes del diminutivo, Lindida/o, o algo cariñoso....
2 hrs

agree  Sp-EnTranslator: es un modo de hablar parecido al "baby talk", se da con cierta frecuencia en la cultura latinoamericana//tal como el uso del sufijo "ito/a" que con frecuencia usan algunos: "¿Me prestas el lapicito para escribir una notita?"

agree  Pamela Peralta: Definitivamente. A veces yo también digo dindo o dinda con mi hija o amigos. Es bastante informal, claro.
