Middle name for Alessandra?

Okay, so I’m rethinking my [name]Alessandra[/name] [name]Chloe[/name] combo. This is the new middle name list, I just need help narrowing it down.

My favourites are *, SO’s favourites are bolded.

[name]Elena[/name] *
[name]Gabriela[/name] *

[name]Seraphina[/name] *
[name]Taylor[/name] (SOs choice)
[name]Vivienne[/name] *
[name]Elle[/name] ** (I’ve gotten quite fond of this.)
[name]Liesel[/name] (Nod to SO’s heritage)
[name]Serenity[/name] *
[name]Victoria[/name] * (But it’s also high on my FN list.)
[name]Leigh[/name] * (But a bit too boring?)
[name]Whitney[/name] *


I think you need to pick a name with a lot of -oomph and history behind it to accompany a name like [name]Alessandra[/name].

My choices would be
[name]Alessandra[/name] [name]Gabrielle[/name] (prefer this version over [name]Gabriella[/name])
[name]Alessandra[/name] [name]Victoria[/name]
[name]Alessandra[/name] [name]Elena[/name] or [name]Helen[/name]/[name]Helena[/name]
[name]Alessandra[/name] [name]Vivienne[/name]

I love [name]Alessandra[/name]! I like it with these middles:

[name]Alessandra[/name] [name]Kate[/name]
[name]Alessandra[/name] [name]Noel[/name]
[name]Alessandra[/name] [name]Roxanne[/name]
[name]Alessandra[/name] [name]Vivienne[/name] – I love this one
[name]Alessandra[/name] [name]Serenity[/name] – and I really love this one!

I agree with you! [name]Chloe[/name] was beautiful but a bit…lacking?

I’m going to make a list of the ones that get the most votes. :slight_smile:

i agree that [name]Chloe[/name] does not stand up to ALessadnra’s beauty. i have read that its nice to have a different number of syllables in the first middle and last names, so if [name]Alessandra[/name] is 4, and your last name is x, narrow down your list to another number of syllables. i also might avoid the names that start with el as it sounds too similar with the al start to alessandra. assuming your last name is not 3 syllables (not that you have to stick with this rule but it does lead to a nice flow) i think [name]Gabrielle[/name] and [name]Vivienne[/name] sound beautiful with [name]Alessandra[/name]. i love [name]KAtherine[/name] and [name]Kate[/name] but these seem a little plain in comparison. also with alessandra starting and ending with a i might try not to have a middle starting with a. all this said, i think the middle is somewhere to go with your favorite regardless of its fit bc it won’t be used much.

I think [name]Alessandra[/name] [name]Kate[/name] is the best of the bunch. [name]Both[/name] are beautiful, strong feminine names but [name]Kate[/name] allows [name]Alessandra[/name] to be flowy and lacey without competing with/taking away from it

From your list, I really love the sound of [name]Alessandra[/name] [name]Elena[/name], but maybe too vowely? Depends on your taste.

I love [name]Alessandra[/name] [name]Liesel[/name] and [name]Alessandra[/name] [name]Kate[/name]. I’ve loved [name]Liesel[/name] for years, and [name]Kate[/name] just sounds so perfect with [name]Alessandra[/name].

I agree with pp, lc22033, that the middle name should not compete with [name]Alessandra[/name]. With [name]Alessandra[/name], I prefer a much shorter and uncomplicated name like [name]Kate[/name], [name]Eden[/name], or [name]Noel[/name], which I think nicely compliment [name]Alessandra[/name].

I love, love, love [name]Alessandra[/name] [name]Kate[/name] and [name]Alessandra[/name] [name]Noel[/name]. Also like [name]Alessandra[/name] [name]Elle[/name]. I do like [name]Victoria[/name], but I think it makes for a really long name.

I like [name]Marin[/name].

Maybe the reason that you weren’t 100% happy with [name]Chloe[/name] as the mn is that it needed a second middle to balance it out?
