If you've been on a noble quest for a girl's name of epic proportions, you may have just found your match with Lysandra. A variant of the greek name Alexandra, it bears the captivating meaning of "man's defender." No wonder author Sarah J. Maas chose this name for one of her characters in the popular fantasy series Throne of Glass. As the Lady of Caraverre, Lysandra is a cunning shapeshifter who grows into a brave and loyal friend despite starting out as a bit of a pest. She even takes a small girl, Evangeline, under her wing and sets out to build a better world for her. Lysandra could also be a feminine form of the Shakespearean name Lysander, meaning "liberator."
