A classic 80s title, Amanda is a feminine name of Latin origin that means “worthy of love, loveable.” First coined in the 17th century, Amanda is derived from the Shakespearean name Miranda, which shares a similar meaning and Latin roots. Amanda was incredibly popular amongst saints and literary heroes until the 1880s before taking a temporary step to the sidelines. In the 1980s, the name flourished in popularity, with actress Amanda Seyfried’s parents joining in on the trend. Nowadays, Amanda is an obvious choice for parents seeking a chic vintage name with a modern appeal.
