#6 Celinda Kerbs

My name is an Anglicized spelling of German names. Celinda, English version of Zelinda and means "shield of victory". It refers to the Battle of the Milvian Bridge when Constantine received the vision from God that if he fought under the Chi-Rho cross he would be victorious over Maximilian. In other words, the name means, "Christ is my shield and I am victorious through Him alone." Elizabeth, English version of Elisabeth and means "pledged to God". Kerbs is an altered spelling of the German word for "skilled or full of craft." It was used in medieval times by knights to signify their illustrious talents.
