Meaning:Protector of humanity
Sandra is a feminine name of Greek origin, both formidable and valiant. A variation of Alexandra, Sandra means "protector of humanity." Both versions derive from Alexandros, the by-name of the revered Goddess Hera, who was indeed a great defender of many ancient Greek heroes and warriors. Boasting beauty and brawn, Zeus's wife was a complex and fascinating entity, capable of great compassion, wit, and fury. Above all, Hera stood as the goddess of women and childbirth, most noted for her resistance to Zeus's authority. Boasting such close ties to the mighty queen of Olympus, Sandra is an empowering name for your little one to embrace every side of their unique personality.
