    There was a little boy that came to an event my church sponsors whose name was Sandy! He was adorable, and I thought it was cool (also, there's a Sandy on the American TV show, How I Met Your Mother). I think it's generally a nn for Alexander. I like it. I probably wouldn't use it (I'd probably opt for Alexei, Skandar, Sander, Xander, Zane, Lex, Sasha, or Alec instead), but I'd be happy to meet a little boy named Sandy. I think it's sweet.

    In Scotland, Sandy is a nickname for Alexander. I think it's fine.

    Sandy Koufax was a big deal in American baseball (real name Sanford) and Little Orphan Annie's male dog was Sandy, so the name has always felt masculine to me

    I can't get my head around it as a girls name either

    This and the movie Identity Thief, where the main character, played by Jason Bateman, is named Sandy. He was named for Sandy Koufax.

    I sort of like it as a nickname for Alexander.
