Meaning:Shining upon man
If you've been dreaming of a brilliant name to match baby's radiance, you'll adore the girl's name Casandra. Slightly shorter but no less sweet, it's a Latin respelling of the Greek name Cassandra, meaning "shining upon man." The original inspiration for this epic pick is Greek mythology's Trojan princess. As the story goes, Kassandra, daughter of King Priam and Queen Hecuba, was blessed with the gift of prophecy. Unfortunately, her talents came with a price, and no one believed her predictions were real. As your little star grows, they'll take inspiration from the princess and have the courage to be their authentic self. They're sure to be unstoppable!
