  • "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. :)" Apr. 14, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Amanda and let me tell you. I love that name since my mom named me that name since 1985 (the year I was born). I have no trouble with that name except in middle school when this stupid boy Jesse Mcguire called me A-Man-Duh, but I got over it. It doesn't bother me anymore now that I have moved on with my life. Still waiting to be re-register to college though. And I have no problem being called Mandy either. Seriously, what is wrong with the nickname Mandy? My twin sister calls me that all the time and I have no problem with that." Jul. 24, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "I grew up being called 'Mandy' and it was preferable to Amanda back then because I only ever got my full title (including middle name) when I was in trouble for something! consequently resulting in me hating my full name - to add insult to injury my mum thought it was a good idea to use my godmother's name as my middle name which was Lynn.... SERIOUSLY! 'Amanda Lynn' sounding like i was named after a musical instrument wasn't amusing to me. Now older and wiser I much prefer Amanda, Mandy sounds to childish now even though my brother married a mandy which resulted in two females with the very same names in the family, Until I married that is. P.s I never ever got called A-man-duh!" Aug. 12, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "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." Apr. 5, 2010: Report as inappropriate
