    Which Would You Pick?

    I recently posted about considering either Scarlett Austen or Scarlett Roxanne, and ruled out Scarlett Roxanne for various reasons, but I love Roxanne as a first and love it even more in the form Roxana. I really also like Roxane, spelled with one N as the character in Cyrano de Bergerac. Roxanna is another choice.

    So basically my four choices are:
    Roxanne
    Roxane
    Roxanna
    Roxana

    Which do you like best? Any comments are appreciated! Thanks in advance!

    Roxana is prettiest I think (she was the wife of Alexander the Great!). It's on my list, so I'm biased... Roxanne makes me think of the song by The Police.

    Roxanna is on my list too. I like Roxane too. It looks like an entirely different name from Roxanne. I might be afraid of pronunciation issues. Roxane could look like Rox-ayne.

    I too prefer Roxana, which is an ancient name (stolen from Persia via Rukhsana) and avoids any red-light implications. It's a strong name with a very vibrant nickname in Roxie.
