French, diminutive of Amanda

Amandine Origin and Meaning

The name Amandine is a girl's name of French origin meaning "much-loved".

This fragrant, almond-scented name has hardly been heard in this country, which is a pity--we've loved it since John Malkovich used it for his now grown daughter.

A French diminutive of Amanda, it was the birth name of novelist George Sand--born Amandine Aurore Lucile-- and is in the Top 100 in France.

Of course, amandine is also a French culinary term for a garnish of almonds.
