HOME DISCOVER ABOUT
A 17th-century literary coinage from the Latin gerundive (feminine) amanda ‘lovable, fit to be loved’, from amare ‘to love’. This is evidently modelled on Miranda; the masculine form Amandus, borne by various saints from the 4th to the 7th century, seems not to have been the direct source of the feminine form. The girl's name enjoyed considerable popularity in the mid-20th century.
50th in the U.S.
