Mandy is a gender-neutral name of Latin origin meaning “loveable,” which couldn’t be more fitting for your little one. In English-speaking countries, the name is typically given to girls as a diminutive of Amanda or a short form in its own right. However, in Latin traditions, the name is more common for boys as a pet form of Armando. The name has also fallen under the spell of celebrities, as Barry Manilow penned the eponymous soft-rock hit, which brought a resurgence to pretty Mandy. The feminine name is also borne by actress and singer Mandy Moore, leading baby to a glamorous life in the spotlight.
