    Lux as a nn for Alexandra?

    I was talking to my sister yesterday about the name Lux. I think it has a cool, edgy sound to it, but my problem was finding a more substantial name to fall back on. So what about Alexandra? Is that too much of a stretch or does it make sense?

    How are you saying Lux? I say it like "looks" which doesn't really fit into/from Alexandra?

    If you're saying it Lucks, then I think it can work. It feels like a big stretch.

    Lol, how else could Lux be pronounced other than 'lucks'?

    I want to say no BUT Alexandra makes me think of Alexandria which makes me think of Egypt which makes me think of Luxor... So there does seem to be a tenuous link between the two. I'd prefer Lex but I suppose Lux could work if using the above connection.

    lol, since most sources cite the Latin meaning, I guess I was silly to consider the Latin pronunciation? like this

    Sounds a bit like "lukes" or sometimes "looks" which more clearly traces the descent of the Luke-names, Luke/Lucas/Lucien or Lucy/Lucia/Lucienne etc.

    Lux said like "lucks" just sounds like the slang for "Luxury" and thus takes it very downmarket to me.
