I love this name. My parents named me Alessia while we lived in Ukraine and when left for America I started hating it but now I see how unique and pretty it is.

Great name to give for the namesake Alice!

I don't really like it, as I think it's too "elegant" in an obvious way.

This name is great with 'Lissy' as a nickname.

I think this name is beautiful. It's not as harsh as Alexis or Alexandra, which I believe all of them mean the same thing.

In Italy Alessia became popular in the 1970s (before it was absolutely rare). It was the 2nd most popular name in Rome in 1976 (behind Francesca), the 6th in 1981, and it's still very fashionable (5th in Italy in 2004, 6th in 2006).

The pronunciation is not AH-le-see-ah but ah-LESS-syah.

I think this name is so cute.

Alessia is very feminine and cute! Better than Alexia as I love the 'Alex' part in names for boys not girls.

This is gorgeous. I've never met or heard of anyone with this name but I absolutely love it.

With my husband being from Sicily and it being ranked in the top ten over there, and considered rare here... perfecto!

I have twin girls, their names are Andrea & Alessia. My husband chose Andrea's name, I chose Alessia's. She was originally named after my grandmother who was an Alicia. I considered naming her simply Alicia but I knew it would be butchered, everyone would say it A-LEESH-UH or jokingly call her Alice so I opted for the Italian name Alessia which sounds nearly the name. Their full names are Andrea Valentina and Alessia Veronica.

We used this for my daughter back in 2007. It still garners a lot of mispronunciations and confusion. But she absolutely loves her name.

I am an Alessia, and I've got to say I love my name. I used to wish I had a more simple name, but it does feel good to have people come up to me and say "wow, your name is so pretty and unique, where does it come from?"
I'm Italian, and even though people often mispronounce it (I've been called Alexis, Alyssa, Ah-lee-sia, and even Alessius) it's a wonderful name to have, and a memorable one.
