चण्ड (masculine form of Chandra)
चण्डा (feminine form of Chandra)
Meaning: derived from Sanskirt chand ( चन्द ) meaning “to shine” or “shining”, ultimately meaning “moon”
Chandra is the Hindu god of the moon. He is depicted as young and beautiful, a two armed god with a club and a lotus, who rides his chariot across the sky every night pulled by ten white horses. He also came to be merged with the Vedic god Soma (a name I already profiled earlier), both of whom are moon deities.
While Chandra is a unisex name, Chander is a purely masculine form of the name.
