- My name is Alexandra. I used to think this name was very common and hated it, but it has been growing more common lately. I love my name, but now how common it is. I know another Alexandra. I have been stuck with the nickname Ally ever since I was a baby, and that is a far more common name than Alexandra. I don't like it that much anymore, but I'm stuck with it now. I like X nicknames for Alexandra - Xan, Xandra, etc
- This name comes in so many forms, but I, along with many others, think that this is the best. It's classic and can work on so many different types of people.
- Powerful and Elegant name. Has a presence about it.
- This name has a huge selection of nicknames, they all sound good and there must be at least one that suits the woman that the baby given it would grow up to be.
- I like because there are so many nicknames that can stem from it. For some reason it sounds more down to earth than Alexandria with an "i".
- I have always loved this name, since I was 14 at least, it means helper of mankind, and I want my kids to be respectful to everyone so I think the meaning of this name portrays that, I also love all the nicknames you can get from it, my favorites being Alex and Lexy.
- beautiful, classic, sophisticated, means "helper and defender of mankind" a strong name, lots of great nicknames - Ali, Alex, Lexi, Sasha, Xandra
- Alexandra Joy; Yes, yes, I know Alexandra is so common nowadays, but long ago, when I was 12 and in 6th grade, kids used to tease me (my own name is Rebecca and they called me Beck the Geek), I would write down many different names on my classwork papers, daydreaming alot. One day Alexandra Joy just came up and I fell in love with that name. Hopefully a half decade down the road, Alexandra will have fallen down some in popularity (HA I know),
- Alexandra William IV: This is actually my daughters name. She actually writes IV beside her name. It's Alexandra William the fourth, because she is the fourth Alex William in our family on my husbands side, the first three being men though. She is the revolutionary girl, women's lib and all of that millenium propaganda added to a simple tradition.
Alexandra is a feminine form of Alexander, which is made from the Greek elements alexo "help; defending" and andros "man."
