This name is born by two lakes, one in South Australia, about 100 kilometers away from Adelaide. This lake was named after Princess Alexandrina, who would later take the name Queen Victoria after ascending to the English throne in 1837. According to Australian Aboriginal Dreamtime, the lake is inhabited by a monster called the Muldjewangk. Another Lake Alexandrina is located in the Mackenzie Basin of New Zealand's South Island.

A very pretty alternative to Alexandra. I also like the Romanian Alexandreina (ah-lek-sahn-DREH-nah).

A rare but very pretty variant of Alexandra, and personally my favorite. Unusual but beautiful.

This is a pretty name, but I think it's a bit too long. I personally prefer Alexandra.

I've been really noticing how Alexandra gets more and more popular everyday. But I've never heard Alexandrina. Can you say beautiful yes.

If you like this name but think it's too long and Alexandra is too boring, try Alexandria.

If I'm not mistaken, though Victoria was christened "Alexandrina Victoria," she was always actually called Victoria. Please correct me if need be.

A self-correction: At least during her childhood, Victoria's family called her "Drina."
