A strong and lovely name.

Lesandar is also a Serbian (Slavic) name now rarely used. It means "gift of the hazelwood" from (les/lesak) "hazel" and (dar) "gift".

English pronunciation is "lie-SAN-dər".

With the current popularity of Alexander, I am surprised that more parents aren't turning to Lysander as "unique" alternative to the more popular name.

It is really a quite attractive name - classic, but with a great modern feel. A cute name for a little boy, but something that would also be strong enough for a grown man.

Lysander Spooner was a notable 19th century American abolitionist and early individualist anarchist.

Even though I really like the name, Lysander's meaning "a release of a man" can either be interpreted as a boy growing into a man, or something quite *wrong*.

Lysander is a nearly-deaf potion seller in Act II of Diablo II: Lord of Desruction. He (humorously) demands to know why the player is always wasting his time, even if he hasn't been talked to yet.

I just adore the name Lysander. I'm worried about teasing though. Also, I want strong and masculine name for my son and Lysander just doesn't fit that in my opinion. Right now I'm iffy about it but I do still love it.

We named our son Lysander and there has never been an issue with teasing. People often think it is Zander or Alexander when they first hear it.

We pronounce it LY-sander and when he was a toddler we called him Ly-Ly. Now that he is nine, he prefers Ly.
His older brother tried Sandy and Sander but it never took.

It makes me think of Lysol (cleaning product) and of lice. Not much of a fan.

This is my given birth name and I don't know how my mother decided to give me the name but I like it and it seems people do like it too!

There is not much teasing with this name, believe me, I've carried the name for 40 years on June 1st!

I love it for a boy or girl, especially along with the Shakespearean connection. It could just be me, but the similarity in pronunciation to "Lysol" makes me think of a bit of a cleaning product!
