    Nicknames for Alexandr(i)a?

    I'm crushing on Alexandra/Alexandria (which one do you like better?) and am kind of overwhelmed by all the great nicknames. Which are your favorites? I like;

    Lexi
    Alexa
    Alexia

    and don't really care for Alex or Xandra or Sandy.

    A girl I know named Alexandria goes by Ali.

    I prefer Alexandria to Alexandra but both are beautiful.

    Alexandria could have the nickname Dria or Ria.

    I slightly prefer Alexandria, however at five syllables, it's far too long for me to want to say completely. Whereas with Alexandra, I'd say the full name often.

    Nicknames I like:
    Ali, Allie
    Lexa, Lexia, Lexy, Lex
    Alexane, Alexan
    Andy, Andie
    Annie, or maybe Anna for Alexandra
    Dria, but spelled Drea
    Xia is a nickname I had in mind for Alexia, which might work.

    I'm not a fan of Alexia for Alexandria because Alexia is such a separate name in my mind that it's like naming someone two completely different first names. Alexa is a better nickname than Alexia, but I'd rather use just Alexa than Alexandria nn Alexa.

    I like Alexandra (Alexandria sounds a bit too much like a place name to me) with the nickname Alexa.
