I love this! The only association is Alexandria, Virginia. But your kid probably won't get teased for that. In fact, I just discovered this name, and it is amazing!

Pretty, but I feel like the “ia” part is too long and unnecessary. So, I prefer Alexandra.
MythicalCreature  4/2/2021
This is such a pretty name. I actually prefer this over Alexandra, which I think sounds rather incomplete. Possible nicknames could be Alex, Andria, Lexie, and so much more.

Alexandria is the total package when it comes to girl names. Not only does it sound astonishingly beautiful, it also has a powerful meaning ("defender of mankind").

My name is Alexandrea, spelled with an "ea". I love it. It's a long name but it's a beautiful name. I go by Andrea most of the time but I do have several nicknames at work Alex, Drea, Annie, Andrea, Aly. My daughters name is Alexiah.

I like this better than Alexandra. Probably because I LOVE long names.

I'm from The United States, and I have never heard this name pronounced "al-ig-ZAN-dree-ə". I've always heard "al-eks-AN-dree-ə".

Alexandria is just as beautiful as Alexandra. There are so many feminine names to choose from, and Alex- names are some of my favorite.

My friend's name is Alexandria, but she likes to be called Alex for short. This name is a cute name!
danielle170  2/5/2018
I'm Alexandria, nickname Ali. While I'm definitely not against my name, I do think it's a little over the top. Maybe I just haven't grown into it yet.

My daughter's name is Alexandria Francesca. I love it though right now she hates it and goes by Lexi, but she's still little. Hopefully as she grows she'll appreciate its grace and beauty.
Mrsloz  6/10/2017
I named my kid that so if she wants to be a boy I'll just call him Alex, but he will still be a person so I'll treat him the same.
vamp_wiz_quiz123  4/16/2017
I named my daughter after the city in Egypt. I loved that Alexandria was the centre of learning in the ancient world, and also that it was the first city renamed after Alexander the Great died. My daughter definitely lives up to the meaning. She is helpful and often the first one to stand up for others! She goes by Lexi. She has a friend from Alexandria, Egypt in her class, I love it!
Artsyone  12/18/2016
I love this name and it's sound, but I'd never give a child this name as it reminds me way too much of a city in Egypt and the child might get teased because of it. I like Alexandra, Alexa and Alexia better, but this name is also very beautiful.
Stasiya  5/9/2016
This name is simply beautiful. Every positive adjective can be used to describe it. If you are considering this name for your little girl, some combos I have that you more than welcome to take a look at are:

Alexandria Paige
Alexandria Lara
Alexandria Claire
Alexandria Caroline
Alexandria Charlotte
Eleanor Alexandria
Sarah Alexandria
Tessa Alexandria
Dakota Alexandria
Violet Alexandria
Caroline Alexandria
Morgan Alexandria
Charlotte Alexandria
Lauren Alexandria.

My name is Alexandria and I go by Alex. When I was younger I was called Alli but as I got older my family and friends started to call me Alex so it just stuck with me and I like it better too. I really prefer Alexandria even though it's not as common as Alexandra. FYI just because it is a city doesn't mean it cannot be used as a first name. Lots of other names are cities too and no one complains about that.
alexandria_nicole14  4/14/2016
I don't like Alexandria as much as Alexandra, contrary to the consensus here. To me, Alexandria is kind of over-the-top/"princessy" whereas Alexandra is strong and has the perfect amount of femininity.

The vibe I get from this name is similar to the vibe I get from Lauren in that both names are more delicate than a similar sounding name.
YITYNR  1/28/2016
This name is like Alexandra. For nicknames, see my comment on Alexandra and for the ones ending with A, just put I before the A for Alexandria.
Jghazt333  1/10/2016
I have given this name to my daughter when my husband wanted it to be Alexandra. I like it as it can have lots of short names. All her friends call her Alex, my family call her Ale. Best thing I like about it is Alex can be for a boy or girl. I'm sure she will thanks us for the name we gave her :)
― Anonymous User  11/29/2015
I like it, but 5 syllables is a bit overkill. Maybe Alexandra would be better but it's more common though. Either way it can still be shortened to Ali or Alex or Lexi or something like that. And to people complaining that it's the name of a city. SERIOUSLY? So is Charlotte and Sydney and other such names but I don't hear anyone complaining about those names.

Duchess Alexandria is a character played by Rhonda Fleming in the film The Great Lover (1949).
Kosta  2/4/2015
I prefer Alexandra to this name, mostly because I used to live in a city in Virginia called Alexandria. It's the name of a few other cities as well, so Alexandria doesn't sound like the name of a person to me.
hkols  11/3/2014
There is a character briefly mentioned called Alexandria in the book The Lost Prince by Julie Kagawa.

My name is Alexandria and I've always liked it. When I discovered its meaning, defender of mankind, I loved it even more. I can't exactly pinpoint why. It's just a lovely name. Since it tends to be a bit of a mouthful sometimes, I usually go by Lexi, which I honestly prefer to other nicknames like Alex or Ally. In my grade, there is a girl named Alexandra, and we go by different nicknames in order to tell our names apart when people don't see the difference. She goes by Ally.

My name is Alexandria and I know many people named Alexandra. Before I knew them, however, I hated the name because no one pronounced it correctly. Now, I like that even if we all go by Alex, My name is different than the other people I know.
Being a History geek, that name is an honor on a separate level because of Alexander the Great and his magnificent cities named Alexandria. The name also evolves with the girl, which will be useful throughout her life. The name makes me feel like one of the beautiful fantasy women I read about or a European Queen in a history textbook. If it wasn't my name, I would give it to my daughter.

I love this name so much. It has a million nicknames for it and she can always use the whole name when she's older if she wants. I like Allie or Lexi for nicknames.

A famous bearer is the British band, Asking Alexandria (one of my favorite bands by the way!)

My daughter is called Alexandria and we call her Sasha for short - it is the traditional for it - and we chose it because we thought it sounded strong, professional and classy.

I adore this name, actually. All of you girls are so lucky to bear this name! I like the elaborated part of it best. Currently there is a British screamo band called 'Asking Alexandria' which I like a lot so that may be why lol but still.

Pretty name, but I prefer Alexandra.

Very pretty, a bit overly-long however. I prefer Alexandra, however, with the nickname "Xandra."

I love this name. I like the nickname Alex and I know an Alexandria that goes by Ali. I like it better spelled Alexandrea it adds more nickname possibilities like Andrea or Andie.
Ranchie  10/9/2009
I like this name. It sounds strong but the -ia at the ending makes it so feminine. I also like it because there's lots of different nicknames for it.

I know a girl named Alexandria who goes by the nickname Zan. I think that's a cute and original nickname for a beautiful name.
britto08  1/25/2009
My name's Alexandria. Even since I was little I liked my name, but when I got older I realized even how much better it was. My name can have so many interesting, cute, and even normal nicknames. Though, my nickname is Alex, which is really common, I still really like it. People have always asked why I went by the name 'Alex', it's because it's short, sweet, and tomboyish. I like how my name can be used for both boy and girl, yet my real name is unique, long, and pretty, and my nickname is short, sweet, and tomboyish. This name is perfect for girls, because they can look at it anyway they want, they can be girly and go by the name Allie, they can be interesting and go by the name like Ali, or they can just go with the name Alex.

There's a German Gothic Metal band called Xandria. They're one of my favorite bands. I think Xandria is a cute nickname for Alexandria.

I absolutely adore this name and I would seriously consider naming my child {if I have one} this name with the middle name Seárlait. It's just a very pretty name that I would definitely use. As far as I've seen, it's not too popular, and there's a city by the name. Plus it's a city named after Alexander the Great, so, yeah. :3

I never really liked my name when I was younger but I'm now 14 and enjoy how I can have so many cutsy nicknames along with the full out sophisticated name. When ever people ask me "Why don't you go by Alexandria, rather than Alex?" I reply back "Alexandria is my princess name, but until then Alex will do".
alexinwonderland  12/27/2006
I love this name; it's so strong and feminine, and it has so many nice nicknames for every stage in a girl's life, from tomboyish to super feminine. I'd definitely consider using this name for a daughter.
Iridosmine  10/16/2006
My 13 year old daughter's name is Alexandria. I've always loved the name because it was not as common and is easier to say than Alexandra. I wanted a name that was extremely strong and yet can be shortened to be fun and sporty. She goes by Alex, but now is beginning to embrace her full name for its beauty, strength, and more uniqueness than its more common sister name.
michelle_k  10/4/2006
I think Alexandria is a cute name and has many different cute nicknames. That means they can have a cute child-ish name as a kid and as the grow up they can go by their strong real name or an older mature nickname. I just like the way Alexandria sounds.

This is such a strong name. It's certainly pretty and feminine, but not quite as delicate (nor as "flowery") as some other formal English female names.

I like that this name is easily shortened into a variety of nicknames. My niece is named Alexandria, and calls herself Ali. I love this little moniker -- I much prefer it over (the more common?) Alex. To me it sounds cuter, sweeter, and prettier.
