That's my name and I am always complemented on how beautiful it is. I do go by Cassie for short, but I think Cassandra is much prettier and would prefer to go by it.

My name is Cassandra but I'much prefer going by Cassie because I hate having people call me by my real name. It's something my mother would only say if I was in trouble or something. To me, It's like a family secret that my real name is Cassandra and only my mother has the right to call me Cassandra. Whenever there is a sub and they have to call me by my real name I always cringe, especially afterwards I have classmates who start using it. Just call me Cass or Cassie. Also! I don't understand this, but I guess remembering that my name is Cassie is difficult. I have many people who call me Cassidy or Kasey and I usually just go with it because I don't like correcting people. It's a bit annoying but nothing I can't handle. But all in all, Cassandra is definitely a unique and beautiful name. =)

Please never'spell it Casandra or Kassandra - only makes It'seem as though you can't spell. I was very lucky to be given'the truely romantic name of Cassandra. There is no other name like it. Just to say the word or to see it written, how beautiful. I have always thought you should imagine your child on their wedding day and think how it would sound when'the love of their life says 'I love you ....'. The challenge for me will be to someday find equally beautiful names for my children.

I love my name as well, to me it means a strong, beautiful, intelligent woman and that's who I try to be. I go by "Cassy" i've never met anyone thats spelled it like that. But I try to go by Cassandra now, as it much more professional, and sophisticated.

I love the name Cassandra, my best friend is named Cassandra. I usually call her Cassandra and sometimes Cassie. She's always hated it and wanted to be "Kassandra" or something like that! I love it!

My name is Cassandra and I love my name. I have met only 4 people with my name and I get compliments on it all the time. It comes from the Greek language, originally spelled with a K. It means "shining upon man." If You'read the Illiad, Kassandra was the'second most beautiful woman in the world and she was a prophet. She was cursed by Apollo when she refused to sleep with him, leaving all of her terrible prophesies unbeli'ved, though they were always true. Kassandra is also in Oedipus Rex and other great Greek tragedies. Because of this character, people incorrectly think the name means "prophet of doom." This is wrong because Kassandra always told the truth in order to help and guide man.

My name is Cassandra and I was born in 1982. Even'though Cassandra is my legal name, my parents never called me that and instead called me Casey. The only time I was Cassandra was on the first day of school and on any legal docs. I have enjoyed having both names as they have different connotations, one being classical and the other being very modern and brave.

My name is Cassandra and my name is pronounced as Cassondra and most people pronounce it wrong as CasSANDRA while it might look as though it would be pronounced that way there happens to be 2 different pronounciations and from experience it is usually pronounced as Casaondra while some with this name Cassandra will have preference to how it is pronounced it is the person that named you that determines how they meant it to be pronounced as my mom told me she named Cassandra pronounced as Cassondra and most people don't know there are 2 ways to pronounce it and you can'tell them many times your name is pronounced Cassondra and yet they still call you CasSANDRA and it is annoying to go through most of your life being called the wrong name or a nickname you don't like. That is the'struggle I have with my name. I love my name when it is pronounced right. I hate Cassie as a nickname. I like when some smart people know there are 2 pronounciations of Cassandra and ask which way my name is pronounced. More people could and should learn that.

10/27/2022 01:03:58

Love my name. Not trendy, tied into mythology so it adds a little mystery and it works the mouths of those who have to say it. Cassandra!
