So yes, we've been watching a lot of Time for School recently and there's a little girl called Pandra. I had never heard the name before but it is a Celtic name meaning 'chief dragon'.

I LOVE it. We are in England but have bona fide Celtic heritage. I am prepared for the fact that many people will assume that it's a typo for Pandora.

But...thoughts?

Actually my first thought was panda.

Pandora is nice though.

Sounds too much like a super hero Panda. Sorry.

I like the celtic connection go for it grin

I thought panda too, I'm not a fan.

KingJoffreysRestingCuntface Wed 28-Sep-16 23:07:41

I love it.

Is the mum Sandra and the dad Pete?

Like a cross between Panda and Sandra. Not for me but if you like it it's your choice.

Sounds like what 'Paul and Sandra' might call their Costa del Holiday home

sad I'd think it was a typo for panda or Pandora.

I love it. It also made me think of pandas but it makes the name even cuter

ShmooBooMoo Wed 28-Sep-16 23:23:19

Sorry, I hate it. It looks ugly and, let's face it, it's basically Sandra with a P rather than an S. Sorry I've nothing nice to say about it...

chinlo Wed 28-Sep-16 23:24:50

Siblings Monkrey and Elephrant?

Really don't like it - have to agree with those who say it sounds like a name blended out of 2 others.

Beautiful smileI'm just sorry I have finished having children as it would be top off my list! I also like Tigra.

KingJoffreysRestingCuntface Wed 28-Sep-16 23:56:53

Ah, I just googled Pandra and ended up watching some 'interesting' Hentai...

Could lead to problems.

AdaLovelacesCat Wed 28-Sep-16 23:59:56

it is dreadful and sounds like sanpro

PatSajack Thu 29-Sep-16 00:02:32

I love Pandra. Also Tigra, Hyenra, and Giraffra.

OlennasWimple Thu 29-Sep-16 00:05:22

No, sorry OP, I agree that it doesn't "work" for English speakers (I also thought of sanpro, Ada)

Stevefromstevenage Thu 29-Sep-16 00:07:18

I think it sounds more Asian personally. Like Ku Fu Panda's love child.

Resounding no here.

I googled it too. I live in a very Celtic country and it did not pick it up as s name.

FindingNemoFindingDory Thu 29-Sep-16 02:09:14

No, sorry...

A senior member of the KKK is a Grand Dragon so the translation is a bit off putting to me.

It also sounds a bit like 'pander' which is not nice.

katemess12 Thu 29-Sep-16 02:20:22

Never heard of it.

Pendragon means chief dragon and is a male name, though.

Panda - Pandora mispronounced - Sandra typo - pander to - ponderous... Sorry but for all the reasons already given by many, I really dislike it. I've tried to picture a
