I remember all my life

Raining down as cold as ice

A shadow of a man

A face through a window

Crying in the night

The night goes into Morning, just another day

Happy people pass my way

Looking in their eyes

I see a memory

I never realized

How happy you made me, oh MandyWell you came and you gave without taking

But I sent you away, oh Mandy

And you kissed me and stopped me from shaking

And I need you today, oh Mandy.Mandy - Barry Mailow

Another famous song by Amanda is that of Victor Jara, a beautiful song that talks about two workers. I remember you Amanda

The wet street

Running to the factory

Where Manuel worked The wide smile

The rain in his hair

Nothing mattered You

were going to meet him

With him, with him, with him, with him, with him

Some actually ask HOW to spell it!?!? Heard that your favorite word is your name, and I'm cool with that. I am such an Amanda. But every time I go to Mexico, the locals always call me Amanda Miguel - the'singer. It's pretty funny. I don't mind.

3/28/2023 4:38:08 AM

Yes I have issues with people spelling my name wrong but for the most part I like my name and my grandma gave me that name because she like the way It'sound and it is from the bible

3/27/2023 7:31:30 PM

G'day from Australia, My name is Amanda Lee & I love the name. I always get Mandy, but I do (secretyly) wish they would call me Amanda. I'm forty now, and have been called both names over the years, but really love Amanda

3/23/2023 5:19:00 AM


3/22/2023 11:05:44 AM

I live in Australia so I have never had another Amanda in my class but i have heard of them in other grades.... I went through the whole A-Man-duh stage 2, but im sooo glad that it was only 1 kid n only lasted 4 like a couple of days b4 the girl realised that no1 thought it was cool.... im sooo glad ive got gr8 people who look after me!! So a word 2 all the Amanda's out there BE HAPPY with what name u have, i think a lot of people r just jealous of u cause they dont have a gr8 name with 'lovable' as the meaning of their name!!! :D

3/19/2023 5:30:32 AM

So yeah my name is Amanda. I am 15 and yeah just like all other Amanda's I went through the A-MAN-DUH stage too. But lucky for me people have grown up. I still dont really like my name but its what my mom gave me so Im keeping it. But I do have many nicknames. People call me Mandaline. Mandalynn. Mandalin. Mandi. Mandiish(concidering I speak my own made up language called Mandiish) Manda Panda. Manda Banana. Manderine. Alot of things. So if your name is Amanda and you dont like it just think your name could be worse. And since our name is old not many people have it anymore. Did you know Amanda means loveable and daughter of god? It also means god angel. So enjoy your name. <3

3/18/2023 9:16:48 PM

I am Amanda, and I never liked that it was SO popular in my age group (born in early 80's). I was bossy as a kid so I got the nickname "Amanda Demanda". I love the name but I often get called Miranda, Samantha, or some other'standard girl name, as It'seems Amanda does not stick in people's heads.

I feel like this is a very over'sed name and I truly wish I would have been named something else. I too have been called A-Man-Duh and I can't stand it. I apolagize to any other Amanda's who are reading this but I honestly hate the name "Amanda"

2/8/2023 11:59:16 PM

My name is Amanda And I had 4 Amandas in my grade 5 & 6 classes. We had to go with the lasy initial. Amanda M, Amanda S, Amanda B and Amanda Y. Then'that year- at a girls camp, I'met An Amanda with the'same last name- and same middle initial. That was confusing.

My beatiful daughter, age 35, is Amanda Kristen. I feel it is the most wonderful name. She is very pretty inside and outside. As a baby and little girl, she was Mandy. When I was pregnant with her, I'met a pretty little girl named Amanda who they called Mandy. That was the day I chose my daughter's name.

12/26/2022 8:28:08 AM

My name is Amanda-Katherine. My parents knew they would have only one child so they named me after both my grandmothe's. I perfer to go by Amanda-Kay and i find my name is very origional in that it is a common name but used uncommonly. I think more people should consider making a common place over used name more personalized by adding something else to it.

12/25/2022 4:18:18 PM

Hey well my name is Amanda. I had to go through the whole a-MAN-duh joke but it never really bugged me.

I have a bunch of nicknames: Manda, Manders, Amandster, Da, Ata, Moose (from softball) and all the common stuff.

12/19/2022 10:07:40 AM

My friends name is Amanda and so is my sisters. I think it is the most popular name in my school. If we want to talk about someone named Amanda we have to say their last name to because there is so many that we wont know who they are talking to.

11/29/2022 5:15:38 PM

My name is amanda and I still get the A-MAN-DUH jokes all the time. I also get Amanda Hug and kiss all the time as well. (thank Simpsons)but thankfully that nickename for me has been'toned down to H.K. for hug and Kiss. Another common nickname I get is Amanda Panda what makes that funny is that I'm half chinese, and pandas are mostly found in china.

11/13/2022 1:02:00 PM

hi. my names amanda, like everyone else commenting. i never really had a problem with my name. in 3rd grade i wanted to change it to alyssa, but just cuz i love that name. i hate the nickname mandy when i was a kid, but now people call me it all the time and i love it, but they spell it mandi. when ever I'met new people, they always asked me "oh, do you get people saying A-MAN-DUH! all the time?" and the truth was no. when i was little, I'might have gotten it once in kindergarden in my first year of elemetary school, but really no one did that. UNTIL RECENTLY!!! im in 7th grade, 13 years old. i have a huge crush on this kid, and im not sure how but all of a sudden, like a week ago, him and his friends will not quit doing it. it bothe's me. i dont care if its someone else, but not the kid i like. i really need a new come-back for it, but i dont know. thats the only thing i hate about my name, but other than that, i dont feel its too bad. its just common, and of course i love some names way better, but i can live with it for now :P lol <3

11/12/2022 10:20:20 PM

i cant stand the "a man duh" joke--It's been sooo over used!! I'meet people with my name'sometimes, and i hate always getting confused with the other Amanda. Also, my nickname's mindy, and i like that because It's different from most of the other Amandas

11/10/2022 4:33:26 PM

My name is amanda. I love my name. Ive also gone through the whole "A-MAN-DUH" stuff and people still do it. Honestly i like it. Sometimes i right my name like that, amanduh or manduh. I find it funny. Some of my nicknames are manda, andy mandzia etc. AMANDA'S ROCK!

11/8/2022 4:56:50 PM

my name is amanda, but sometimes i get made fun of it. people are always saying "hey look its a man" then someone else saying "duh!" and then'they laugh. I just laugh it off with them but im getting sick of it. I love the name except it easy to make fun of it.

11/5/2022 7:50:02 AM

My name is Amanda and I am called Amanda. The only person that called me Mandy was my great grandmother. Amanda is a very popular name and I am very glad to be named that!

11/1/2022 5:25:50 PM

In regards to any trans people considering this name: it has the word "man" as part of it, you may want to avoid that. (A man, duh!) Most Amandas I have met were gossipy and all about the drama, or had very loud personalities, thus ruining the name for me.

10/30/2022 12:31:50 PM

I love the name Amanda, mine is Amanda Marie, nicknamed manders never mandy lol. I love it because it means deserving of love and I think It's beautiful. :)

10/30/2022 9:00:14 AM

I seriously don't understand why anyone would name a child this. I think It's a silly sounding name. It's like panda or bandana. It's just an overeused name from the '80s. If anyone is intent on an A name, I'much prefer the more sophisticated and feminine Ava or Alexandra.

10/26/2022 8:18:52 AM

my name is amanda and my mom picked because she thought it was beautiful.every one always thinks It's just so histerical to say "oh, It's aman...duh!!!. It's also very common but pretty. i wish my parents called me amanda but i was named mandy from birth and It'stuck!!i also like how it means much loved or lovable...It'sbeautiful!!,love AMANDA

10/25/2022 11:26:54 AM

10/23/2022 6:32:54 AM

I think its a wonderful name. I have two friends named Amanda and they are both very nice. Additionally its a romatic name to say. ( well i think so) so loveable

10/22/2022 8:33:22 PM

haha my name is Amanda as well! but everyone calls me manda i always used to hate my name, but its alright. i dont think it fits me well, im always thinking of other names. hopefully my future kids dont hate their names, i wish that my name was more original, there are just too many amanda's lol. obviously haha. im naming my future daughter jaelyn brylee, i think its really original and not that common. but yea my name is just wayyy to common.

10/22/2022 7:19:52 AM

my name is amanda and when i was little i was made fun of a lot because people use to call me a man duh.. and i hated it even'though i love and am really proud of my name.

10/19/2022 5:54:30 PM

10/17/2022 9:14:14 PM

My name is Amanda. i really like the name, but ashley would fit me too. I really love the name Jade.

10/13/2022 11:11:34 PM

i love my name amanda because it fits me so well. All the things written about the name match me. It is a sweet name for a little girl and a beautiful name for an adult

10/11/2022 4:31:46 PM

oh course i went throught the a man duh stage as well but people never'said it too much. i never really thought the fit my personality, though its a pry cool name. i dont have anybody in my class with the name and i know about lik 4 people with the name. nicknames of mine have been-- manda manda panda panda bear manana mandy(which i dont lik the most)

10/10/2022 11:29:02 PM

Amanda is very good name to have, my sister is called Amanda. However, its unfortunate that it can be fragmented into funny but quizical jokes as well as be used in rhymes (e.g. "Amanda the Panda" - I think its cute but she'scorns it!), I think its outright rude to have silly [fictional?] products named after Amanda (e.g. the Amanda Doll)...

my name is amanda i love my name but i go by manda or mandy i like manda the best but back to the point amanda's the best name you can give a girl

My dh and I have always loved the name Amanda, and saved it for a daughter. When we adopted our baby girl from China, we chose Amanda Li, because it means "beloved and beautiful". We were told (by those who named our baby the morning they found her at the orphanage gate), that her Chinese name also means,"beautiful and 'hopes that'she'll be loved'". While Amanda might seem like a common name, she'll always know that it wasn't given'to her by accident! As far as nicknames, since Amanda seems so elegant for a little baby, we sometimes call her Manda Li or Panda Li or Manda Panda, but Mandy just doesn't fit her. I hope she doesn't hate her name when she's older.

My name is Aman-DUH too! I think It's very feminine and pretty. I love the meaning and the fact that no one misspells or mispronounces it but it is common. And anytime someone says we have a mandatory meeting I almost think they said my name. My husband calls me Manna and I think that's cute :)

10/7/2022 9:57:44 AM

My daughter Amanda loves her name and so do I, obviously. It is a strong and solid name while at the'same time being gentle and beautiful.

10/6/2022 9:19:30 PM

My name is Amanda, but I go by Mandy because people say,"She is a man! Duh!"

10/3/2022 11:05:08 PM

Okay , Uhmm My name is Amanda . And Tell you the truth. I am 13 now. And of course when you were younger , every kid wants to change their name. I'mean I did also. And yes there are kids in my classes that call me A-Man-DUH. But I changed my mind again. I like my name. I like it because it is original. And I also like it because My Wonderful mom gave me that name. (:

9/30/2022 6:02:14 AM

My name's Amanda , I HATE It'soooo much. I'mean its a pretty name, but it doesn't fit me at all. Everyone thinks I'm some preppy white girl when I really like a laid back, chill afriacan-american.

9/29/2022 5:56:18 AM

Ok well my name is Amanda and i like my name. As for you who say that "a man duh!" is funny, its not its stupid... making fun of someones name is like making fun of someones race... they didnt choose it... and if you make fun of there name, whats so perfact about yours? you may be joking, but no matter what, its never ok to say somthing that goes against the way someone else is... unless your name is amanda also, because you know then know what it feels like... otherwhize keep your mouth shut! its not funny, its not nice... its annoying!

9/16/2022 10:49:28 AM

8/28/2022 3:23:42 PM

"Amanda" meaning worthy of love has been a very auspicious name for me since I feel very loved by famly and friends.

6/23/2022 6:22:48 AM

my name is amanda and although i have often met people with this name as well it doesn't bother me. i love my name and i think it has a beautiful meaning, worthy of love or lovable. Plus i've been complimented on it numerous times and no one has ever mispelled or mispronounced it. plus it translates the'same in so many different languages, like in italian it means lovely.

6/18/2022 7:25:48 AM

My name is Amanda. I think everyone has their name made fun of. I like being named Amanda. It's common enough that people don't think It's freaky but It's not as boring as some of the other common names out there (like Sarah or Nicole). I only like being called Amanda or Manda. I hate Mandy, It's too "American cheerleader" for me (I'm an Aussie girl). Best thing is it never gets spelled incorrectly which would annoy me so much if I had another name!

4/26/2022 12:15:36 AM

I absolutely love my name.... The name itself is worthy of love ! :)

3/9/2022 10:14:06 PM

3/9/2022 2:54:54 PM


3/6/2022 2:44:06 AM

My name is amanda and i really think It'suits me even'though i don't like it that much. I used to get tired of kids calling me "A-man-duh!" or "Amandapanda" but icouldn't see myself with any other name.

3/3/2022 6:55:12 PM

2/21/2022 1:48:18 AM

I really like my name (yes, its amanda) i always get the "its a man...duh!" STUFF. its annoying but i dont care. i get the Amanda Manda Manda Manda Manda showwww thing a lot too. not as much as i used to, but it happens XD

2/20/2022 12:04:48 PM

my name is amanda it is easy to find on gift items and souvinears no one pronounces it wrong, lots of people are named it

1/27/2022 4:18:36 AM

I'm Amanda, but I don't like any of the common nicknames like Mandy.

1/26/2022 10:49:12 PM

Well my name is also Yadira and I'm inlove with it. People always pernounce it wrong and they also call me yadi or yaya.Oh well i still love my name.

1/26/2022 8:59:24 PM

My daughter is Amanda Grace. I named her that because I knew she'd be "worthy of love" and "full of grace". She is beautiful and the name'suits her perfectly.

1/23/2022 12:28:12 PM

i don't like it too much as it is sooo common! i'd never change it, though, since i wouldn't know what to change it to! i usualy go by "Mana" anyway. One day i hope to live in a different country where people will find my name odd and mispronounce it!! xD

1/16/2022 7:25:48 PM

omg my names amanda 2!XD like every guy calls me A-MAN-DUH and mostly everyone is like oh amanda they likeyou...and i think they do! i also have like 7 friends that are amanda and everytime someone calls out amanda and were all next to eachother were like "which one?" its fun tho ]

1/10/2022 2:17:06 PM

I don't like it! It looks really pretty written, but It's ugly when you say it, it reminds me of A MAN DUH...... I would hate to say to someone "Hi I'm A Man Duh" when You're a girl, It's just really dumb!!! DON'T NAME YOUR KIDS AMANDA BECAUSE PEOPLE LIKE ME WILL MAKE FUN OF THEM!!! If would like your kid to be called Mandy, just name it Mandy forget A MAN DUH!!!

12/18/2021 2:32:24 PM

It's my name and I love it It's such a pretty name!

12/12/2021 12:08:24 PM

My name is Amanda and it all depends on the day if I like it or not. Now that I'm not in High School anymore It's not so bad. But then I never had a class without there being at least 3 or 4 other "Amanda's".

12/10/2021 8:47:42 PM

My name is Amanda, as a young child I was called Mandy. I didn't like it much, It'sounded condescending and cutesy. I just wanted to be taken seriously. I'moved areas in my early twenties and always introduced myself as Amanda, and that is what I am known as now. I never had that Aman-duh thing, I live in England and we just dont pronounce it that way. Some say Amander. That makes me chuckle!

12/7/2021 6:40:48 PM

I love my name its Cute... When people call me A MAN DUH... i just proudly say "yes it has three syllables can we grow up now?" ... I have a few nicknames as well they are all up there already But my brother calls me Adnama :) lol

12/5/2021 4:27:36 AM

My names Amanda. When I was younger I didn't really like my name but now that I have grown up a bit, I have decided I actually quite like it. When I was in school, I used to get called A-man-duh alot. That was so annoying!! Nicknames that my friends have given me are manda or mand. My mum calls me panda. I only know four people (including myself) with the name Amanda. I also like my name now because Ive found out the real meaning for it, 'She who must be loved'.

11/21/2021 10:57:18 PM

Yo dawg, I peeped yo message. I'm Jamin as well. It is indeed a cool name. Many people mispronounce so I often go by jay. Ok, well I gotta go to work now but it was nice chatting with you.

11/19/2021 3:14:42 AM

my nAME IS amanda i am 10 and i HATE my class they all call me a-man-duhhh i am a women'they say are you a women or a man and stert laghfing and i want to puch the face so love you

11/11/2021 4:49:12 PM

i've grown to love my name and think the meaning is cool. There are so many worse names out there. I have never heard of the A-man-duh thing in my life but i've had A-man-da hug and kiss like once. Lol I know of a feminist who changed her name to Awomanda because she didn't like having "man" in the middle of her name. Pity coz woman still has man in it. :P

11/5/2021 9:50:42 AM

I think I'might like the name Amanda if I hadn't been carrying it around all my life. I like names that mean something, and Amanda is a Latin gerundive which is usually translated as "worthy of love" though a more literal translation is "one who should be loved." While this name definitely needs to be retired for a few years, I think it will be pretty to use again in a generation or two.

11/5/2021 12:41:42 AM

I like my name Amanda, I had a best friend from the time I was two until the end of highschool named Amanda too. The meaning defines me perfectly and besides that A MAN DUH is not my nickname it is Da manda cause I get what I want.

11/3/2021 11:59:24 PM

my name is amanda. one of girl called me bec It's sound name a man DUH.. i love dis name. hehe also other name is mandy. mostly peeps call me mandy. :D

10/26/2021 10:00:36 PM

I am a teacher and I HATE HATE HATE the name overdone! I have at least four Amanduhs in each class each year and It's not cute anymore! Do NOT name your girl Amanda unless you are into clones or minions. BORING!!!

10/13/2021 10:06:00 AM

My mother named me after her Cherokee grandmother, and said she was afraid of her, and never once saw her'smile. The name means ?worthy of love? in Latin, I'm trying to earn the title. It's popular in France for strippers, hookers, and female impersonators. All told, it is a name of power.

9/15/2021 4:05:06 AM

I like my name and its meaning, althought you would probably never guess it. I think my father (whom named me) made a great choice with it. I don't mind that It's common, by some standards. It's a nice name, and I'm happy to have it.

9/12/2021 2:46:48 PM

my name is amanda, and im proud of it. i think It's a pretty name. i don't care what othe's think of me as it is, so if they think amanda is a weird name, theyre probably insecure about their name. =D

9/7/2021 9:19:12 PM

YEAH!! My name is Kaitlin obviously or I wouldn't be posting on here. Well I love my name!! I love the way it is spelled and I only know one person who spells their name like me also but now I know five other people which is totally awesome. Everyone pronounces my name right but they can't spell it right. I can't stand that! I have a friend that'spells her name Katelyn but I don't like that'spelling because it is very boring. I hate having to telling every one how to spell my name because they always want to spell it with a "y" but It's not!! I LOVE MY NAME!!!

8/11/2021 8:35:06 PM

My name is Amanda and i like it beacause It's a pretty name and it means love...but i dont like it because i am always getting made fun of " Amanda is a man duh" i am always getting made fun of

8/5/2021 3:26:24 PM

Hey you fellow Amandas!! I share your school ground experiences with the ever'so popular "she's a man....duh!" Oh god, bad memories, but hey, its one of the most popular names, so we are definetly not alone

8/1/2021 8:02:42 AM

This is my name. nowhere can i actually find alisha written on things it always spelled alicia. Ever'sence i was little ive been looking to find objects like when i was in school i always wanted the pencils, pens, notebooks that'said Alisha but it was always spelled alicia

8/1/2021 5:18:00 AM

It is true that no one mis-pronounces it but it is just too common. I have always been in classes with other Amanda's and worked with other Amanda's.

7/19/2021 10:46:30 AM

yeah thats my cousins name !! __

7/9/2021 3:37:12 PM

amandas also my name and i love it! people used to say "amanda please"nto me all the time but i dont mind since im a big fan of amanda bynes. i wish this name was less popular but other than that,im proud to hav it

7/7/2021 3:07:30 PM

I love the name Amanda, its great!! They always have our name for Key Chains and magnets because its so commom.

7/6/2021 7:06:00 AM

my name is also Amanda, imagine that! Growing up I really didn't like it, kids made fun of is a lot by saying, "Hey look! It's Aman-Duh!" But i guess you get use to things like that after a while. My name is very common I would imagine that everywhere I go there is a least one to two people that are saying the name Amanda but not talking to me. I guess one gets use to that after awhile also. I do like my name, It's mine after all, but when I have children I don't think that I would name my child a name that is so common.
