The Meaning of Names

<< < (11/11)

Alexandra Johanna:
My mundane name is Alexandra. I was named after my father, Alexander, which means "Defender of Man". Supposedly my mother was expecting twins (I have never gotten a good reason out of her as to why she would be expecting twins) so they only had twin names picked out and she didn't want to use any of them when only me showed up. I was their last child and they had no sons, so they went with Alexandra. My mother hated this name though and called me Sandy instead.  I also have no middle name, I only have an initial, which is J. My dad has a middle name, a Flemish form of John, which he shortened to just J. when they came to the USA.

I've always liked Alexandra, yet hardly anyone I know calls me that. Thanks Mom! LOL
