Comments and insights on the name Pandora: | Edit

In Greek mythology Pandora was the first woman, and disobeyed the command of the Gods by opening a container. That "Pandora's box" released all the evils of mankind into the world. Today the phrase "Pandora's box" refers to any action that opens up a plethora of trouble you can't take back. This would be an incredibly negative name to give a girl (and the inevitable crude "Pandora's box" jokes wouldn't help matters).
