Hey girlys, Myself and DH are stuck we cannot decide if we want the english or Italian version which do u think?

oooh i don't think i could decide between those! >:o) the will be shortened so i' say the italian one would be sorted to sandra or alice ans the engish one alex... so depends which of those you prefer. alos depends on ur surname too. whichever rolls off the tongue easier

Yeah thats kinda the problem both go with our surname, if its Alexandra we'd shorten it to Alex, if Alessandra it will be shortened to Alesa

Hi Mrs Bambi, I like both names, but i chose Alexandra. Could be shortened to alex, alexa, ali...

Love both names - never had heard of it being spelt Alessandra before - Is it pronunced the same. Myself I'd go with the Alexandra

Yep its pronounced nearly exactly the same, only thing that puts me off is that she'll spend half her life having to spell it and don't like the name Sandra (bad girl in school)

I went for Alessandra. My sister and my best friend are both Alexandra's. It's quite a popular name in Germany and Greece. :-8 That's why I personally would go with the italian version, as it's more unusual.. :-8

Love them both - can't decide. I knew a girl in college whose name was Alexandra but was shortened to Sasha - I don't know how you get from one to the other but thought they were beautiful names
