Young Canadian pop singer Alessia Cara has given this spicy-sounding name a new lease on life, propelling it 348 places in 2016, into the Top 1000. (It was one of the year's fastest-rising girls' names.) The main risk is that it feels so close to Alexa, Alicia, Alexis and Alyssa-- all becoming overused -- that it could be mistaken for one of those more familiar names.
