    Alexandria I have used in a story of mine and I love it. She has the nickname of Sasha which is used more and her middle name is Blair. Sibling is Jasmine.

    I think I prefer Alexandria a bit more. Mostly because in history we learnt about how the city was so important in relation to medicine, and about the Great Library of Alexandria. And there was the Lighthouse of Alexandria, which was one of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World, so it's got a lot going for it. Plus it's got a bit of a mysterious, magical feel to it that I really like, and a lot of history. It might be going on my list now!

    I have personally met too many Alexandria's to count, it would be refreshing to meet an Alexandra.

    For me, Alexandria has a little bit too much flair, but that's consistent with my general dislike of frilly names (I'd take Isabel over Isabella, Sophie over Sophia any day). Alexei is my favorite Alex name. There's also the spelling Aleksandra, which to me has a different sound. Alexandra comes out sounding like al-ig-ZAN-druh when I say it, whereas Aleksandra is al-ik-SAHN-druh.

    Andi is a fine nickname. I'm not the biggest fan, but that probably stems from the how boring I find Andrew. It's nicer as an unexpected short form of Alexandr(i)a than in its usual place.

    I am a bit torn. I like the historical associations that come with Alexandra, I like the dated Lexie, and I just like the overall sound. I also like Alexandria; but for some reason it feels harder to say for me and I feel like other people may mistake it for Alexandra anyway. I like both, ugh it's so hard!
