Sandra Origin and Meaning

The name Sandra is a girl's name meaning "defending men".

2012's Hurricane Sandy blew away whatever style currency Sandra retained from its 1960s Sandra Dee heyday. While in recent years it's been associated with Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, as a baby name Sandra is sinking beneath the waves.

Actress Sandra Dee added to the popularity of this name during the mid-twentieth century.
