- Comments and insights on the name Zander
My last name was Zander before I got married last year. I had heard of a distant relative named Alexander, whose nickname was Xander. Well, after I researched it, I found many boys named Zander, but no girls.
So my husband agreed to name our little angel (baby girl), Zander Jo. Since then we have met 3 other Zander's in our small town. Zander is a VERY common last name where we live...but mostly everyone loves it!
Zander is a European fish similar to the walleye.
Zander is cute for a girl, too
- Personal experiences with the name Zander
My Dad's Name is Zander and he tells me he's never met or heard of another Zander. Most people think its short for Alexander, but his name is just Zander. My Mom tells me he used to hit on girls (the way she tells it it was everyone but her) by telling them he was as unique as his name, and as his best friend she'd elbow him sharply and tell the girls he had about as much personality as a twig, just to annoy him (now, they are madly in love with each other of course).
When I named my 17 month old son Zander I had never heard of an actual person with the name. After he was born I came to find out that he actually has a distant cousin with that name.
