I love Alexander for a boy, and I could tolerate Alexandra for a girl, but this just sounds clunky to me. While I tend to prefer long, gently old-fashioned names, five syllables just seems too much.

I really like this name, but I don't think I would actually use this as a first name. I think it fits better as a middle name in my opinion.
