DD really likes Alexia if the baby is a girl, I like Eliza.

I would be grateful for your opinions.

Alexia. I'm not really keen on Elizabeth or any of its derivatives, which Eliza is. Much prefer Alex, Lexie as nn's to Liz, Lizzie etc.

Eliza is my favourite - Alexia sounds ever so slightly too posh (I know, ridiculous but nonetheless initial response). Also think Alexia is bound to be nn straight away, whereas Eliza would probably avoid shortening, if that's what you'd prefer.

Alexia. Brilliant name, and you don't hear it often.

I like Eliza. Alexia seems a bit...complicated.

What about Alicia?

Eliza for sure.
Alexa is ok, but Alexia sounds a bit much to my ear.

Like Eliza a lot. Alexia is too much, Alexa is much better. That i seems to be for no reason other than to make it more difficult to say!

I like Eliza to, but second the vote for Alexa, both nice names (that want helpful was it?)

I'm not keen on Alexia as a name as it's the name of a reading disability Alexia

Alexa is pretty though, as is Alexis
