    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

    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.
