Meaning:Shining over man; Excelling over men
Cassondra is a girl’s name of Greek origin. It’s a variant of Cassandra, the Latinized form of the Greek name Kassandra, which means “shining upon man” or “excelling over men.” In Greek mythology, Cassandra was a Trojan princess who was given the gift of prophecy, but cursed so that no one would believe her. She accurately predicted events such as the fall of Troy, but her warnings were never heeded. Despite the tragedy of Cassandra’s tale, her name remains popular for its beauty and impressive meaning. It’s often shortened to Cass or Cassie for a sweet nickname, but Sandy and Sandra are also options, making it a versatile choice.
