Sandi or Sandie for a female. Those are more pretty.

An adorable name for a dog. I know a Pomeranian named Sandy and her fur colour is like a Sandy colour.

This strikes me as a nickname for Alessandra, though not one I would use. It reminds me of a dirty-blonde girl that's WAY too spoiled.

I love Sandy as a nickname for Alexander. It's a bizarre name for a girl, and PLEASE don't spell it Sandi, Sandie, Sandye, etc., that's just mean.

I can think of two other Sandys not mentioned: Sandy Brown, the girl from the old cartoon Noozles, and Sandy, the female tiger-striped hamster from Hamtaro.

In the movie identity theif, the main character is a man named Sandy. He gets teased for it and thinks its strange, but I personally like this name more for boys and had a feeling that it was originally masculine. For some reason, I like if for boys but hate it on girls!

The dog from Annie was called Sandy, but I can't remember if it was a boy or a girl.

Hurricane Sandy, also known as Superstorm Sandy, was a large hurricane that hit the Northeast United States in October 2012. At the time I posted this comment, it was the largest U.S. hurricane on record.

Much prefer it as a boys name and the majority of people I know with this name are male, and the only girl I know spells it Sandi.

Sweet, gentle name. Prefer it spelled "Sandie" for a girl or woman.

Awful name. Anything that ends in "dy" is ugly. Andy, Mindy, Mandy, Candy. Gross. As a prostitute's alias - ok, as a first name - not ok at all. Even uglier when "y" is swapped with "i".

Two girls I know use it as a diminutive of Sunday.
Also in Greece many girls named Kyriaki (=Sunday in Greek) use it as a nickname.

I like Sandy Cohen on The OC however I think this is not good for boys. A grown man needs a stronger and more masculine name.

Can also be spelled "Sandi".

I can't really see this name on guys anymore, it sounds very feminine and cutesy. It's a nice nickname for Sandra, which sounds a tad harsh, whereas this name has a soft sound to it. My associations to this name are quite negative, though. The name sounds like a mean high school girl name from the 90s, and the series Daria with its mean and manipulative character Sandy Griffin probably has a lot to do with that. On the other hand, it sounds like the name of someone a bit bubbly and ditzy.

In the Time Quartet series of books by Madeline L'Engle, Sandy Murry is the twin brother of Dennis Murry. He is also the brother of Charles Wallace Murry and Meg Murry. In A Wrinkle in Time, he doesn't appear too much, but Many Waters features his twin and him very prominantly as main characters.

Ha ha! Sandy Cheeks is the name of the squirrel on Spongebob! Ew. And the annoying girl in "Grease." Not my recommendation of a good name for a kid.

A correction - or rather, addition - to a previous comment: Sandy Cheeks from SpongeBob's real name IS Sandra, but I do think it also is a reference to her fur. :D

I think Sandy is better as a guy's name than for a girl. I quite like it.

Long since used as a nickname for Alexander in Scotland. I actually like it better as a boys' name; for a girl it's sort of tired and dated.

Sandy is the name of the energetic squirrel in "SpongeBob Squarepants." I don't think Sandy, in this case, is associated with the names Alexandra or Sandra. She is named that because of her color and because she's a "land squirrel." An actress who bears this name is Sandy Duncan.

I think of Olivia Newton-John's character in the musical Grease, but also of Annie's dog, which is not a bad thing.
