Not Alice, but that'd be two A names and Alex and Alice are too similar.

Hi language. Great thread! I'm wondering exactly the same!

DD1 was Alexandra from day dot. We are struggling with a name for DD2 (but have plenty of time, due at Christmas).

Lyra

Haha - was coming on to say Helena or Elena. Or even just Helen.

Victoria would also work, and is unusual these days.

Or how about Isolde?

Verity goes well too.

Yonionekanobe, just out of interest - what nickname (if any) do you use for your Alexandra?

Love Eleanor and Clementine!

Elizabeth or Sophie.

Ruby came to my mind when I read the title.

I know an alexandra and anastasia.

Yonionekanobe Fri 30-Aug-13 20:16:13

She is known as Lexie or Lex. She is only two at the moment so may have other ideas when older. That was one of the appeals if the name for me. My name is similarly malleable and I liked that growing up.

Elizabeth

Interesting that a few people have suggested Elizabeth. That is DH's favourite for dD2.

DalmationDots Fri 30-Aug-13 20:23:53

Theadora or Millicent are my current favourites and go well

Isabelle - nice, lots around but declining in popularity
Sophie - love
Estelle - not for me
Helena - quite nice
Florence - like Flo but not florence
Alice - love but not sure it goes with Alexandra, if in time Alexandra becomes Alex or Ali then Alice and Alex would sound similar.

Isabelle - or Isobel smile
