Zander : Meaning, Origin and Popularity

Meaning of name Zander:

Zander is the phonetic equivalent of Xander, a short form of Alexander. The meaning of the name is interpreted from “alexein” meaning “to defend” plus “andros” which translates to “man, warrior” in a relational or possessive form. Hence the meaning: Defender of men. The name is embodied largely by the well-known king of the Greek-influenced Macedonia dating back to the 4th century BC: Alexander the Great. You will be hard pressed to find a more legendary warrior than this man. The name was popularized in the post-classical era throughout Europe as a common given name, and is shown several times in the New Testament. There are more than 40 Christian saints named after Alexander. As such, the name gave way to dozens of variations, nicknames, and short forms. Xander is mostly used by the Dutch, while Zander is more typically American (English).

Popularity

Zander's name first appeared on the American male naming charts this century in the year 2000. Another example of a nickname becoming a given name in its own right, Zander joins Alex, Alec, Xander, and Sasha as other names. It seems that Alejandro is such a timeless classic; we can't imagine why people want to officially shorten it on the birth certificate. His son can still be called Zander although his formal name is Alexander. By simply using "Zander" you are essentially limiting your child's options later in life. I wouldn't recommend this name as a stand-alone. It's too casual and cheesy on its own. Although Xander is a high ranking name that is given independently in Belgium (not so much, but also the Netherlands), so what are we going to say? We love this as a nickname, but feel it rather restrictive as a given name.

My son (born July 2020) is named Zander, saw It'spelt with and X originally but liked it with Z better. We found it hard to fit the 'right' name but this suits him perfectly. His middle name is Ash (as chosen by his big sister Marni Elizabeth) :)

We named our son Zander. Saw the name in the birth section of our local newspaper (spelled with an "X"). Loved the name. We mentioned it to my husbands grandma & she told us that Zander was her grandma's Maiden name!!! (spelled with a Z) We knew it was fate! LOVE the name & our 4yr old fits it well. Blonde hair, green eyes, mellow & loving.
