Proper noun

Amanda

  1. A female given name from Latin.
    • 1767 Laurence Sterne: Tristram Shandy: Book VII, Chapter 31:
      O there is a sweet era in the life of man, when ( the brain being tender and fibrillous, and more like pap than anything else ) - a story read of two fond lovers, separated from each other by cruel parents, and by still more cruel destiny -
      Amandus - He
      Amanda - She -
      each ignorant of the other's course.
    • 1994, Caroline Graham, Written in Blood, page 35:
      Sue always thought of her offspring as Amanda. Allowing her to name the child had been one of the last indulgences that Brian had seen fit to bestow. Even then he had not the generosity to conceal his displeasure at her choice. Pretentious. Snobbish. Affected. The baby had been 'Mandy' from the day of her birth and, once Brian had really got the hang of high-rise/comprehensive linguistic mores, 'Mand'.

Amanda

  1. a female given name
    • 1990, Tuula-Liina Varis, Vauvat yhdentyvät Eurooppaan, Suomen Kuvalehti, 30 (27.7.)1990:
      Koreita nimiä ku köyhän kakaroilla, sanottiin ennen. Köyhällä ei muuta koreata ollut lapselleen antaa. Itsellenikin on läheinen lounaissuomalainen maatyöläisen pesue, jossa suomalaisen nimen peräkaneettina vilisi Wilhelmiinaa, Aleksandraa ja Amandaa, jopa Dagmar. Suuresti epäilen, osasiko kumpikaan vanhemmista sitä lausua.
      Such rich names for such poor children, as we used to say. The only rich thing a poor person had was the name they could give ot their child. I knew very well a southwestern family living off the land, where their Finnish names were followed by Wilhelmina, Aleksandra, Amanda, even Dagmar. I have my doubts about whether either of the parents even could pronounce those correctly.
    • 1996, Raija Siekkinen, Kaunis nimi, Otava, →ISBN, pages 80–81:
      Mutta hän katseli tyttöä: kummallinen nimi, Siiri, vaikka vanhat nimet olivatkin muotia nykyisin, ja pienet Annit ja Amandat tappelivat muovileluista hiekkalaatikoissaan; mutta siihen sukupolveen tämä tyttö ei kuulunut.
      But she looked at the girl: odd name, Siiri, even if old names are in these days, and small Annis and Amandas fought over the plastic toys in their sandboxes; but this girl was not of that generation.
