Kassandra is a girl’s name of Greek origin. This name has a detailed history, translating to “the one who shines or excels over a man” and is known popularly to convey “unheeded prophetess.” In Greek mythology, Cassandra—a Trojan priestess of Apollo—was cursed with the ability to prophesize the future, but no one would ever believe her. The title has since been used as a rhetorical device to tell of someone whose accurate predictions are not believed. You might choose Kassandra to remind baby to stand sure in their truth, no matter who does or doesn’t believe them. Cassandra, as a name, has an enduring style that is even more modernized by its “K” counterpart.
