My sister has that name but my mom made a mistake because instead of pronouncing it Le-an-dra she pronounces it Lē-ON-dra. So that’s fun.

My daughter's name is Leandra, she was named for her great great grandmother from Cuba.
I found that the meaning is Latin for "Strong as a Lion" which suits my daughter so well, she is 9 years old.

It sounds so harsh.

My name is Leandra, I was supposed to be a boy and my name was going to be Leander, so I received the female version of this name. It does mean a "Lioness who commands". I am in my 50's and have only heard this name two other times in all my days of life so it is very rare. I also go by Lea, Lean and of course Leandra!

It is my name but spelled Leeandra and I didn't know of another Leeandra (Leandra) for the first forty years of my life. I am 50 as of March 2015) The last five I have met six of them spelled in various ways. They were all 10 years younger and more. Leondra, LeeAndra, LeAndra, Leandra and mine Leeandra. Although it is a rare name it seems to be catching on. I have heard several meanings, the main one being : daughter of Leo but I really don't know. The urban dictionary has an interesting one for sure.

I think Leandra is so pretty! I'm surprised it's not used more often.

Leandra is used in Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian, although it's not too common. It is NOT a modern creation, and it certainly isn't a combination of Lee and Andrea. I do like Leandra, but it certainly is not an English name! [noted -ed]

The name doesn't sound particularly pleasant to me. I don't like the somewhat harsh sound of ''andra''.

Leander sounds much nicer, and it strikes me as a unisex sounding name. This just sounds like someone adjusted the ending. But personal choice, neh?

I read that Leandra is Greek and means "commanding as a lioness."

I /personally/ LOVE this name. I am currently planning to write a story with the main character named Leandra. I think the meaning would be 'lioness' or 'lion of a woman', as it's the feminine form of Leander, which means 'lion of a man'.

Leandra is a very beautiful name.

Wow! Can't believe that this name isn't that common! I thought it would be like Andrea and Alondra, but much more rarer! I LOVE this name and so does my sister.
