Do you want to be reminded of just how loveable your daughter is every time you yell her name in frustration? Then perhaps Amanda is your girl (name, that is.) Even though the name was extremely loveable (just like it’s meaning) in the 80s and 90s, it’s been slowly falling out of favor. It’s still a pretty-sounding name and has been a lovely choice for a girl ever since the seventeenth-century when poets and playwrights brought this name into popular usage.
