My name is Chandra and I pronounce it CHAN-dra. I went by my middle name when I was younger because I was aggravated when people didn't pronounce it right. Now I have fallen in love with my name. As I am older now, I love to see all the different variations on how people people pronounce it. I am mixed with African American and European American.

In "Magic: The Gathering", Chandra Nalaar is the primary red planeswalker. Red magic represents the chaotic and emotional aspect of magic. Chandra is a true rebel, a pyromancer who rebels at any rules or authority.

My name is Chandra! It's a cool name and my teachers think it's very interesting. I'm surprised that some actors and actresses are named Chandra. My friends pronounce it as: Shan-dra or Chan-dra or San-dra. I would love to have my nickname "Chani".

I like the sound of this name, and I think Chandra would work fine outside of India. The meaning is cool, too.

An unfortunate bearer of this name is the late Chandra Levy, an intern at the Federal Bureau of Prisons in Washington, D.C. who was murdered. After her murder, an investigation unearthed an extramarital affair she had with U.S. Congressman Gary Condit, though he was never a suspect in her murder. (Due to the bad press, he lost re-election in 2002.)
In March of 2009, her murderer was found: Ingmar Guandique, who had assaulted other women in the area where Chandra's body was found.

NO. It's Chan-dra pronounced exactly as it's spelt. I'd know because this is my last name.

Chandra is in general a north Indian name. It is also a north Indian last name. People with that last name could be linked to one of the great kings of India Ram Chandra although some people believe it Chandar a different name altogether.

Chandra is my last name and I'm blessed to have that. I'm a Indo-Fijian and my ancestors are from India over 500 years ago. I don't know how I got the name but am blessed to have it. I've vowed I'll never change the name because I love it.

It is supposed to be pronounced CHUN-DRA, actually CHUN-DUR-A. I like SHAWN-DRA better though, nice name with a very pretty meaning.

To me this is SHAN-dra and what I have been named. It's interesting to see different cultures and dialects pronounce this in their own way. Also, I am Irish/French with a French last name and it flows beautifully!

Chandra is a beautiful name whether it's pronounced CHAN-dra or SHAWN-dra (I've known girls named both!) It's strong, unusual and elegant at the same time. All excellent attributes for a little girl.
