I think Alessandra is a very pretty name. I even like it better than Alexandra.

It can also be pronounced alice-and-ruh. I know this because my name is Allessandra! Spelt with 2 L's and 2 S's.

I go to school with a girl named Alessandra, but she is called Allie. I love the name and think it is very unique and pretty.

Feminine, elegant, and impressive, this is a rare name that can easily be shortened to a variety of nicknames, including but not limited to Allie, Sandy, Sandra, and Andie. This name is beautiful!

I love this name! It's beautiful, elegant, passionate and sophisticated. People will always mistake it for Alexandra even though there is no "x" in the name. People will most likelly look twice when they see such an exotic/pretty name anyone should be proud to have it. I much prefer this on females and not males. This is the name I have in mind for my future daughter!

A very pretty name, however, born by an -intensely- disgusting individual, Alessandra Mussolini, the granddaughter of the facist Italian dictator. She was previously a topless model but has since been a member of several neofascist parties and has been criticised for a strict anti-homosexual stance and several reports of anti-homosexual abuse, as well as allegedly presenting fraudulent signatures. Hm. Hurry, I want to name my child after her.

This is my name but I have an I instead of an E so it's Alissandra. I like my name but I do often get called Alexandra and I find it quite annoying. I have many lovely comments about my name which is nice. :)

I think this is one of the prettiest names I've ever heard, even though I don't personally know anyone named this. If I ever have a daughter, I will probably name her this.

My middle name is Alessandra (named after my mother who is called Sandra) and I never really liked it. It always seemed like the name someone would give to their child if they wanted them to be aristocratic or elegant on purpose. I prefer names (especially girls' names) to have a bit of sweetness to them and this name does not have any sweetness to me.

I don't like "Al" for a girl's nickname and I hate the "less" in this name. I prefer "Alexandra" in its place.
-- leananshae  12/19/2007
This is one of the most beautiful names I have ever heard. I'm amazed by the elegance it possesses, and I especially like as the first name with two middle names - for example 'Alessandra Michaela Greer'. Incredible.
I always liked Alexandra too, but I know she'd end up being 'Alex'. It seems like it'd be different with Alessandra though; more likely to be known as 'Ally', which is pretty too.

Alessandra Ambrosio is a model for Victoria's Secret.

A famous bearer is Italian film, television, and stage actress Alessandra Acciai (born December 12, 1965). She's known for her roles on television "Incantesimo" (1998-2001) and films like "Anni Ribelli" (1996) and "Princesa" (2001).

I used to know someone who spelt it Alyssandra, and got called Alyss, or Alice.
-- rachypiesheepbaa  9/5/2008
I love the name Alessandra. I think it is very pretty. I don't like it that a nicknames are Sandra (I'm not too fond of it) or Al. I would say that Alessa would be a nice nickname, other than the little girl in the movie Silent Hill was named Alessa.

In Italy Alessandra is one of the most often given names of the last 50 years. It was the most popular in Rome in 1966, the 4th in 1971 (behind Barbara, Simona and Laura), the 3rd in 1976 (behind Francesca and Alessia), the 5th in 1981 (behind Valentina, Francesca, Silvia and Sara), the 10th in 1986. Its duration till today is remarkable, though it's looking a bit down (17th of the most popular names in Italy in 2004, 22nd in 2006).

The pronunciation is ah-less-SAHN-drrah.
-- presentperfect  12/20/2008
I absolutely LOVE this name! It has sort of a nice ring to it, don't you think? :) One of my faves!
-- kool_babe14  5/7/2009
I think Alessandra is a really pretty name. My friend has this name and we call her Alessi for short.
-- little_sootball  5/27/2009
I'm pleased to see so many flattering comments about the name Alessandra, but many have also put their finger on the problem with having it - you so rarely get to use it. It is always abbreviated, and then people get to know you by the abbreviation and assume you're really called Sandra, or Alison, or Andrea. Although when people find out your full name they almost always say how lovely it is, they still can't be bothered to say all four syllables!

I like this name. It's prettier than Alexandra. However, it's way too common and I prefer lesser-used Italian names.
-- bananarama  5/12/2010
I like Alexandra better, because of the nickname Xandra/Zandra. But Alessandra is very beautiful and complex.
-- DaphneSusan  3/17/2011
I absolutely LOOOVE the name Alessandra. I've loved it for as long as I can remember. It's SO beautiful, classy and elegant. If we have a girl I'm naming her Alessandra ;)
-- SoCalGal73  5/13/2011
Gorgeous and uncommon... and that's bullsh*t that people apparently always give this name nicknames. It doesn't need one!:)
-- Dragon_Clarinet  8/14/2011
I *love* this name.
I have a friend called Alessandra, but she goes by Sandra (which suits her really well, other nicknames wouldn't). If I called my daughter Alessandra, her nickname would be Allie. :)
-- zoe x  11/19/2011
My daughter is called Alessandra Tia Rose. Also, we call her Ally.
-- Indy  3/4/2013
Can also be Alyssandra ( Ahl - E - Sah - Drah )
-- sweetmeagan23  6/15/2013
Wow, I don't know why people like this name. It sooooo pretentious. And plus, there are far more prettier Italian girls names out there. And this sounds prettier that Alexandra? Um, no, Alexandra is way prettier.
-- MeinNameIstMelissa  7/15/2013
Well, I for one would sure like to know which Italian names are prettier than Alessandra, because I can't seem to find one.
-- Cangialosi  9/26/2013
I just love this name... love it. I'm hispanic so I'm tired of the name Alejandra... it's so common in all the Spanish speaking countries. I'm also not fond of the trendy names Alexis, Alexa or Alexia. The name Alessandra is soft, feminine, not common in any country (except Italy perhaps but the popularity there has been falling for years). If I had another daughter I'd DEFINITELY name her this.
-- Bajafresh  12/19/2013
This is a pretty name. I knew a girl named Alessandra years ago but everyone called her Lala. I guess it was a spin off the more common 'Ale' nickname. Beautiful name... pretty sexy nickname too. Win-win.
