History and Origin
A 17th-century literary coinage from the Latin gerundive (feminine) amanda lovable, fit to be loved, from amāre 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 source of the feminine form, and is itself not now used. The female name has enjoyed considerable popularity in the mid-20th century.
Short form: Manda.
Pet form: Mandy.
