All Shades of Pink!
Amanda is derived from the Latin meaning 'Worthy of Love'. Gentle and kind, beautiful and caring, she loves unselfishly. She values her family above all else.
Nothando is a Zulu/Ndebele name which simply means 'Mother of Love'.
What do both of these names mean to me in conjunction with my obsession of All Shades of Pink?
Pink is feminine yet a soothing color that represents caring and love. It is a protective and compassionate color that heals. This lighthearted color can stimulate happiness. Too much of bright pink might stimulate energy and incite passionate behavior just like its distant cousin Red.
The pink color stands for unconditional love and understanding, and is associated with giving and receiving care. Since pink is a combination of red and white, both colors add a little to its characteristics. It gets the lust for action from the red color, and the white color gives it an opportunity to achieve success and insight. Passion and power from the color red, softened with the purity and openness of the white color completes the pink color meaning. The deeper the pink color, the more passion and energy it radiates.
Pink is romantic and intimate, feminine, loving, caring and extremely considerate. It tones down the physical passion from the red color and replaces it with a gentle and loving energy. The color pink is insightful and intuitive and it shows tenderness and kindness from its empathetic and sensitive nature.
In color psychology, pink is a sign of hope. Take for instance, the pink ribbon which represents the breast cancer awareness. It is a positive color that inspires warm and comforting feelings. The color pink gives the feeling that everything will go well or be okay. It may also indicate good health and success.

Overexposure to the color may have the opposite effect though.
Pink helps people get in touch with their thoughtful and caring side, either through the need to receive, give or care for others. Please pay attention if you have a friend who often wears pink, as it may indicate a need to be accepted, supported and loved.
