Yes, Allegra has been chosen by a drug company for the name of their allergy medicine. However, it is such an elegant and beautiful name that it really doesn't matter. If I were going to have a daughter I would consider Allegra for her name. Afterall, who wouldn't want a name that means "happy".

ALLergy and ALLegra both start with 'ALL' making it easy to remember the brand name. Also, by taking Allegra the allergy sufferer becomes cheerful and lively and not allergy symptom ridden. Excellent name choice for allergy meds!

Clara Allegra Byron (January 12, 1817 – April 20, 1822), initially named Alba, meaning "dawn," or "white," by her mother, was the illegitimate daughter of George Gordon, Lord Byron and Claire Clairmont, the stepsister of Mary Shelley.

Born in Bath, England, she initially lived with her mother and Mary Shelley and Percy Bysshe Shelley, but was turned over to Byron when she was fifteen months old. She lived most of her short life with boarders chosen by Byron or in a Roman Catholic convent, where she died at age five of typhus or malaria. She was visited only intermittently by her father, who displayed inconsistent paternal interest in her.

Allegra Coleman was a fictional celebrity invented by writer Martha Sherrill for the purposes of a hoax magazine article. Model Ali Larter portrayed the imaginary model in Sherrill's feature which appeared in Esquire (November 1996).

A parody of celebrity profiles, the article described an upcoming movie with Woody Allen, her tempestuous relationship with David Schwimmer (including a scandal involving nude photographs supposedly taken by paparazzi) and her friendship with Deepak Chopra. The hoax was revealed by Esquire editor Edward Kosner in a press release to the news wire services.

Sherrill later wrote a satirical novel on Hollywood life which featured Allegra Coleman as a prominent character. The novel, My Last Movie Star, was published by Random House in 2003.
