The history and origin of Majandra

The name Majandra is relatively modern and doesn’t have a traditional nationality or cultural origin. Because of its association with Delfino — who was born in Caracas, Venezuela, to a Cuban mother and Italian Venezuelan father in 1981 — some may associate the name with Hispanic or Latino culture, but it’s not a traditional Hispanic name.

It’s pronounced like ma-HAN-drah, with emphasis on the second syllable.
