Tünde is a Hungarian feminine given name. Derived from Hungarian tündér meaning "fairy". This name was created by the Hungarian poet Mihály Vörösmarty in the 19th century in his work Csongor és Tünde (Csongor and Tünde).

“With Csongor and Tünde, Vörösmarty has given new life to the fairy-tale forest whose last visitor was Shakespeare. Moving on Vörösmarty’s stage are fairies, imps, witches and cosmic deities. This fairy world naturally performs its dance on the poet’s magic carpet of language.” (Antal Szerb)
