I love this name because I have never met an Alejandro that's ugly. Note that this name is really common where I live. All the Alejandros I have met are really handsome and have great personalities. My brother's name is Alexander but since I remember he has always wanted to be an Alejandro.

This is a great name. It has a much more elegant sound than Alexander.
-- YMPvt  3/24/2007
No it's not. Alexander is WAY more better, manly, beautiful sounding. Alejandro is in my opinion, ugly.

In the original stories of Zorro, Alejandro is the name of the father of Zorro. Don Alejandro de la Vega, the real name of Zorro is don Diego de la Vega. Anyway I like this name more than Alexander!

One of Lady Gaga's new songs off of her new album "The Fame Monster" is called Alejandro. :)
-- walesgal92  12/13/2009
Cool. Totally. 'Cause it's Lady GaGa's song.
-- SunnyHoney  6/23/2010
Pronounced "ah-le-CHAHN-dro" with ch, like Bach.

I adore this name. Masculine and strong, but not too rough, and it has an unusual "rythmn" to it, if you get what I'm saying. Should I ever marry a Spanish man, I can guarantee it'll make an appearance.
-- Black_X  10/8/2011
In Spanish the J sounds like an H. I still love my name in spite of Lady Gaga but to her credit at least she pronounces it properly.

I have a love/hate relationship with the name Alexander; some days I find it immensely sturdy and handsome, while other days I think it sounds bland and weak. Alejandro, however, doesn't tend to falter from its place in my mind as an intriguing, durable name. My one annoyance is when it is used on a person who shares no heritage of it's origin... Alejandro is a big name, and if it is paired with a surname that doesn't match the ethnicity, it looks off-balance and potentially pretentious.

A handsome strong choice for anyone with a Latino/Hispanic background!

I simply enjoy saying this name; Alejandro has a certain rhythm to it that I can't deny I love. A great boys name.
