"My name is Charndra, with the r in there so it's pronounced Chaandra,(hard ch) but it doesn't work, as other Chandras have said! I now say it's like Sandra but with a "Ch", and this has really helped. Otherwise, it's so unusual that people just stare at me blankly. I realised that is what happens when meeting other people with an Indian name I'd never encountered- I'd just stare, trying to process the name. "Sandra with a 'Ch' solves the problem!"

"This is my middle name but was almost my first name. I've always loved my middle name, it's much more interesting than the common Ann, Rose, Lynn, Marie middle names of most women my age." Aug. 3, 2019:
"My name's Chandra (pronounced with a hard Ch-). I like that it's a pretty name and all, but seeing as how I'm still in high school, most of my teachers pronounce it wrong. Usually they can't even pronounce it at the end of the year! What is so hard about a single name? Either way, it's a pretty name." May. 27, 2008:

"My name is Chandra & 9 out of 10 people pronounce it wrong until they get to know me. I say it with a hard "CH" like chocolate & cherry. Other than that it is great because it is very unique.. I have only met 3 people who have the same name & pronounce it the same and I am 31yrs old." Jan. 4, 2006:

"My name is Chandra which is pronounced with a hard "CH". I absolutely love my name. It means "moon" so as the moon gives light in darkness so does every Chandra to all people in their darkest moments." Jun. 11, 2010:
"I pronounce my name with a 'Sh' sound like chandelier, champagne, etc. I like the name since it is unique but like with others who have commented very hard for people to get right." Aug. 6, 2009:
