My mother named me Sandra and I'm thankful for that. i've always loved my name, although people miss pronounce it alot. I don't meet alot of people name'sandra, the fewer the better.
My mother's name is Sandra. I think that my grandmother wanted it to be pronounced as "Saundra" but they spelled it wrong on her papers and she thought it would be confusing... She goes by Sandy.
My name is Sandra Lea (Lee). One parent wanted to name me Alexandra. One did not. My mother thought most would call me Alex and she did not want that for a girl. They decided on Sandra. Legally is use Sandra, but friends call me Sandy, which is great. It is informal. I am not one to stand on formalities, unless absolutely necessary.
It's my name and I love it!!! Even'though most poeple call me Sandy - my family still calls me Sandra (we pronounce It'sondra)...
That's my name and I pronounce It'sau-ndra or Sondra. My middle initial is "D" so I too received jokes during the "grease" era. Look at me I'm Sandra D....lol! I was named after my aunt and my sister named her daughter'saundra so now there are 3 of us! 1 for each generation in my family.
My name is Sandra. I was called Sandy my whole life. When I became a diplomat and moved to London, I told people my name was Sandra. Of course the BrIt'sh always called me Saundra which I hated. Was born in 1962. Never like my name until now. Happy with my name and don't care if people call me Sandra or Sandi.
I live in australia and have no problem with anyone mispronouncing it but it was very popular once so everyone knows how to say it
This is my name. When I was a little girl I was not found of the name due the way my mother pronounced it. She pronounces it (Not-Halie) not sure if this is correct, but as i've gotten older it I feel that the name fits my look.. I'd still like to know the meaning of it as i cannot find it online.

HATE IT HATE IT HATE IT! First of all, being born in 1981, my parents gave me this name WAY too late. Also, It's pronounced Sondra. I understand when people pronounce it "Sandra" as that IS the way It's spelled, however, PLEASE PLEASE don't make the jump to "Sandy" --- UGH!!!
My name is Sandra and most people call me by that name. Sandy is my Nick name and I don't mind It either however I hated it when I was under 14. I was born in the early 70s and the name was not common in Australia. Well I don't meet too many people with the name now, however I did come accross a few growing up. Sandra is a great name I can't complain.
My name is Sandra Jean born in 1968. I go by SandI'most of the time. My closest friends call me SJ or Jeany Professionally I use Sandra J.
I am 50 yrs old and called Sandra. Being from the'south of England, It's pronounced as Sarndra. I have always thought it a bit plain,so I neither love or hate it. Always preferred my second name Elizabeth. Sandra was very popular in the'sixties when I was born.
I was named after my Grandmother's best friend who accompanied her via ship from Poland to Ellis Island 1905 at age 16 ( her best friend's name was Alexsandra Polish derivative of Alexandra ) I am very proud I am a survivor of my family who survived the Holocaust I have survived many trials and am still standing! Starting to thrive again
Hated the name as a child in the 70's and much preferred Sam or Sandy nicknames. Grew on me over time and learned to actually like my name in full, Sandra and preferred it over nicknames. It's San-dra. Do not like the "Sondra/Saundra" pronunciation at all!
My name is Sandra... I was born in the 80's but people always associate the name with someone much older than me :-P It's always been pronounced SAND-ra (not Sondra) and I go by Sandi for short. I didn't like my name throughout most of the'school years, but now I realize it was much better than getting lost in the crowds of Jessica and Melissa ;-)
i've had the name for 56 years and I love it. I'm called Sandy which is perfectly fine with me. SANDRA sounds too formal and I am not a formal sort of gal.
My name is Sandra Beth and I like my name. Was not popular in MA but when I'moved to New Yourk there is one at every corner. Weird I was born in New York but moved after 6 maths old.
My name is Sandra, but I hate that most people pronounce it as "Saundra" or "Sondra". It's too commona name. =(
My name is Sandra Sue. I love my name and prefer the more familiar Sandi from friends. In fact, I know I'm in the company of friends when'they address me as Sandi. I think my parents named my first name'sandra after the'sandra Dee that was popular in 1963 and Sue after my father's Aunt Sue. Sandra is a great name.

I'm Sandra Jean. i've always hated my name. I think It'sounds like a complete nerd. I go by Sandi but I hate when doctors and official documents use "Sandra". I'm in my 50's now (my name was popular when I was born) and my name tells everyone I'm grandma age! I hope to legally change It'soon.
My name is Sandra (pronounced Sand-ra not Sondra), but I go by Sandy which I prefer to be called. I used to hate my name in elementary and high school but now that I'm almost through college I realize that my name Isn't so bad. It's nice to have a name that not a lot of other people have!
