Sandringham Rd is named after the Royal Estate in Norfolk, England.
Sandringham Rd has been known by several earlier names.
Sandringham Rd was originally called Cabbage Tree Swamp Rd. Auckland Libraries (n.d.) say it was renamed Kingsland Rd in 1877; Davenport (1990, p.202) says it was renamed in 1900.
Around 1929, part of Edendale Rd (sometimes written Eden Dale Rd) was renamed Sandringham Rd. The name New Edendale Rd was also used at some point.
The north end of Sandringham Rd, between Kingsland Railway Station and New North Rd, was originally called Clarke St (dates needed).
