Lysander is a boy's name of Greek origin with an intriguing meaning of "liberator." Bookworms may recognize this name from Shakespeare's topsy-turvy comedy, A Midsummer Night's Dream. Like the other star-crossed lovers in the play, Lysander finds himself under Puck's spell after running away with his beloved Hermia. A half-dozen cases of mistaken identity later, they are reunited and marry in a triple ceremony alongside their friends. You may also recall that Lysander is one of Luna Lovegood's twin sons in the epilogue of the Harry Potter series. No wonder this noble and striking name has captivated readers of literary works for centuries.
