"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." Nov. 5, 2017:

"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 unbelieved, 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." Apr. 3, 2007:
"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." Mar. 17, 2007:
