Meaning:Defender of man
Zander is a boy's name of Greek origins, meaning "defender of man." Zander was once largely tied to big brother Alexander but is now making it on his own as an independent name. Like Xander, Zander's name is thought to spring from legendary warrior Alexander the Great of the fourth century BC. Today, Zander can forge his path by taking inspiration from other notable influencers in his league, such as Graham Bell, Hamilton, and Fleming. This cute spin-off is the perfect choice for parents looking for a simple, unruffled name that still sports a weighted etymology.
