The pronunciation in French is more like a-lek-XAWNDRe, it's an x, not an s. That's why my friend prefers to be called Alex because otherwise people say his name wrong.

Alexandre Desplat is a famous composer. He created the scores for movies such as "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," "Twilight: New Moon" (even though the movie was less than fantastic, the score and soundtrack were amazing), and "Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium" (alongside fellow composer Aaron Zigman), among many others.

A slight correction: the Portuguese pronunciation of Alexandre is [əlɨ'ʃɐ̃ⁿdɾɨ] and the Brazilian pronunciation is [ale'ʃɐ̃ⁿdɾi].

Alexandra is [əlɨ'ʃɐ̃ⁿdɾə] in Portuguese and [ale'ʃɐ̃ⁿdɾə] in Brazilian Portuguese.

Alexandre Ribot was a French politician, four times Prime Minister.

Ribot was born in Saint-Omer, Pas-de-Calais. After a brilliant academic career at the University of Paris, where he was lauréat of the faculty of law, he rapidly made his mark at the bar. He was secretary of the conference of advocates and one of the founders of the Sociéte de legislation comparée. During 1875 and 1876 he was successively director of criminal affairs and secretary-general at the ministry of justice. In 1877 he entered politics, playing a conspicuous part on the committee of legal resistance during the Brogue ministry; in the following year he was returned to the chamber as a moderate republican member for Boulogne, in his native département of Pas-de-Calais.
