Ondina

There is a female name, Marina Ondina, in a story I'm reading.
In it says that her name is cloying, but I cannot see why.
So my questions are:

  1. What does "Ondina" mean or associate with?
  2. Why do you think her name is cloying?

Thanks in advance.

sorry this is coming in bits and pieces but cloying in spanish is "empalagoso", sickly sweet. there is also a verb "empalagar" to be too sweet.
