There's a bit of confusion regarding the name's meaning and relation to Alexandra in Greek. While the ending -andra (feminized from "andros" meaning "of man") is the same, the first part of those names is entirely different. "Alexein" means "to defend," so Alexander means "defender of man." "Luein" is a Greek verb meaning "to free," so Lysander (m) or Lysandra (f) means "liberator of man."

Lysandra is a character in the Throne of Glass series who is amazing. She's badass yet manages to maintain her femininity and is a strong, honorable character. If you want a strong, awesome daughter than this is a perfect name. It sounds soft yet sophisticated and is very beautiful, much like the character herself.

Lysandra is a character in Sarah Maas's The Assassin's Blade, and she's sort of very terrible and everyone sort of hates her guts. So that name's ruined for me, but it's still pretty.

Update on my previous comment (another book came out in that series): Lysandra's actually the best ever.

Lysandra was the daughter of Ptolemy I and Eurydice. She became Queen of Macedon in the 3rd century BCE after marrying Alexander V. After Alexander was murdered, she married Agathocles, who she had at least two children with. When Agathocles was executed, Lysandra fled to the court of Seleucus I with her children.

I really like this name; it sounds so fresh and new, but whilst also having a lot of history about it. And it beats Alexandra any day of the week, in my opinion. :)

I like Lysandra, there's many different aspects that can be pulled from it- the Greek original, the butterfly, or just as a variant of Alexandra. Lyra can be a nickname, which adds the astrology meaning.
