Sandy was a very popular name in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. It has since lost its popularity in the past few decades when many parents named their daughters Britney, Amanda, Ashley, and so on. Every decade brings a new set of popular names, usually based on the popularity of a TV show or an adored famous personality.

The name Sandy is considered a diminutive form of the names Alexander or Alexandra, which have Greek origins. The name Alexander, or “Alexandros” in Greek, translates to “defender of the people,” composed of “alexein” (to defend, to help) and “aner” (man). Alexandra is simply the feminine form of Alexander, carrying the same meanings. Over time, Sandy evolved as a popular nickname for Alexander and Alexandra, especially in English-speaking countries.

So here we go with ten songs with the word Sandy in the title. And no, we did not forget about Sandy from Grease, we just didn’t want to put it on the list.
