Alexandra vs Alexandria
I love Alexander nn Zander/Xander for a boy but I don't think I'd ever actually use it. However, I think I'm starting to like the feminine versions of it. What do you like more, Alexandra or Alexandria and why? Or do you not like either at all? Also, I like the versatile nickname options for this name. What nicknames do you like best? Specifically, do what do you think of the nn Andi? Thanks!

I find Alexandra a bit boring considering how many people I know with similar, but more exciting versions: I had a coworker named Alexandria-- I think it's very beautiful and still accessible. I also recently met an Aleksandra, which I also find intriguing and beautiful. Finally, I know a Zandra. I'm surprised this nn isn't more popular considering all the love that Xander and Zander get around here.若兰
I'm just a third-culture girl with an affinity for names.

I prefer Alexandria, as an underused place name and a slightly more regal variation of Alexandra. Personally, my favourite versions of the Alex family are Alexa and Alexis. I love the nickname Andi. I have known quite a few girls with the name Andi/Andy/Andie, and it actually holds up beautifully as a name, particularly with the Andy/Andie spelling.
There are lots of nicknames I like for Alexandria:
It is a very versatile name.

I know of a little girl who goes by Xandi and it's super cute I just wonder if Xandra and Xandi would often be mistaken for Sandra and Sandy, 2 names I really don't like. I think Xandra and Xandi make the names Alexandra/Alexandria a bit fresher. I know way too many girls known as Alex, Lexi, and Alexa, which is why I'm on the fence about this name. I love the versatility of it but at the same time wonder if it's a tad dated/overused.
