Etymology & Historical Origin - Alondra
The name Alondra is a Spanish pet form of Alejandra (English equivalent Alexandra). Alejandra is ultimately derived from the Greek word “alexein” which means ‘to defend’ plus “andros” which translates to “man, warrior” in a relationship or possessive form. Hence the meaning: ‘defender of men or mankind’. Alondra is also the Spanish word for lark, which is a small brownish songbird known for its extravagant, melodious songs particularly while in flight. Alondra is currently the 23rd most popular girl’s name in Mexico (2010).
Popularity of the Name Alondra
Alondra first appeared on the U.S. popularity charts in 1993. However, in 1995 the name gained a massive 763 positions on the charts in one year alone. What happened? Well, it appears that 1995 was the year a Mexican telenovela series called “Alondra” debuted with much success and Spanish-speaking Americans went “loco por este nombre”! The name came close to hitting the list of Top 100 favorite girl names in 2005 but has since been declining in popularity. We like the association with the songbird best. After all, your baby girl is your greatest song yet, right?
