I like Alaska, however, Jude to me is a boy's name. I would say June as an alternative, however, the capitol of Alaska is Juneau, and to me, that's a bit much lol. If you really wanted to go with something similar to Jude, I would go with Alaska Jade. However, I would personally pair Alaska with a more classic girl's name, just to ground it a little more.
I love the suggestion of Alaska Jessamine! So pretty!

I don't like it at all, especially with the middle name Jude. People would automatically assume she was a he, regardless of the clothing she wore. Since Alaska is such a unique word to be used as a name, the middle name should be something gender specific, so people will help understand that your child is a girl.
If looking to name your child after your favorite vacation spot, I'd look for something a bit more personable.
That said, I do like the suggestion of Alaska Jessamine more than Alaska Jude/Jane/June. Alaska June is too similar to Juneau, Alaska.** The opinions expressed above are not meant to be reflective of Nameberry as a whole but are my opinion and mine alone. **

When I first saw your post, honestly, I immediately thought of this: "I'll-Ask-ya" (a question, etc.). Just something to keep in mind when it comes to teasing & school--besides the fact that it would be a pretty 'out-there' name to begin with. I think the idea of it is pretty, though.
