1620s, probably a shortening of earlier splendidious (early 15c.), from Latin splendidus "magnificent, brilliant," from splendere "be bright, shine, gleam, glisten," from PIE *(s)plend- "bright" (cf. Lithuanian splendziu "I shine," Middle Irish lainn "bright"). An earlier form was splendent (late 15c.).
