Other Origin(s):Latin
Meaning:The moon; Glowing
Candra is a girl’s name of Sanskrit origin, meaning “the moon.” If baby reminds you of the moon’s ethereal beauty, this lovely name could be perfect for them! Candra may also be a variant of Candace, which derives from the ancient Greek word kandákē, meaning “glowing.” Both meanings bring to mind the pale light of the moon, making this an excellent choice for a little night owl.
