Gender: F Meaning of Pandora: "all gifted" Origin of Pandora: Greek

Pandora has occasionally been used by the British gentry (for girls with brothers who might be called Peregrine) but is rarely heard here, probably because Pandora was the mythological first woman on earth whose curiosity caused her to lift a forbidden box and inadvertently unleash all the evils of the world.

But perhaps she's paid the price long enough--Pandora could conceivably ride the wave of other rediscovered names Dora and Theodora—unless it's too identified with the popular internet radio site.

Pandora is the eponymous title character of an Anne Rice vampire novel, and appears in the Adrian Mole books.
