1. An animal with huge ears that flies south for the winter. However, some amandas (called "lesser amandas") are born with ears that are just slightly too small to take flight; because of this, they develop a deep rage and become vile, loathsome creatures who love nothing more than to ruin the lives of others and harass you by calling you incessantly with a restricted number only to hang up as soon as you answer, not realizing you know who it is. Lesser amandas frequently nest in their cars and live in filth, and derive their entire education from teen magazines.
2. I female given name of Latin origin meaning "fit to be loved" or "worthy of love."
"I don't think that amanda's ears are quite big enough to fly, it's awful nasty!"
