Which should be first, which second name?

Alexandra Lily

Because there are billions of little girls called lily around here. DD1's reception class list has 4 Lilys on it.

But both are beautiful combinations.

Alexandra Lily - both lovely though

I prefer Lily but probably would go for Alexandra as Lily is so popular.

Zettina Wed 24-Jun-15 22:10:50

Alexandra Lily, just because Alexandra is beautiful and has so many options for shortening that are also lovely.

Alexandra Lily, I love Alexandra
Lily Alexandra sort of all flows into one word imo.

Definitely Alexandra lily. Lily is meh, Alexandra is beautiful.

Sophronia Wed 24-Jun-15 23:24:08

Definitely Alexandra Lily. I'd much rather hear of a little Alexandra than yet another Lily.

I'll buck the trend and say I like the sound of Lily Alexandra better grin

I like the flow of Lily Alexandra better but Alexandra Lily will be more unusual. What letter will her surname start with? (Please say F so she can be Alf)

I like Lily Alexandra but think I'd go for Alexandra Lily. As others have mentioned Lily is too popular and Alexandra is the nicer name of the 2.

I like Lily Alexandra.

we like both names but as some posters pointed out, Lily is very popular, otherwise it would be my favorite as it's more feminine.

I prefer the sound of Lily Alexandra, but the pp make a very good point about the popularity of Lily.

To me, Alexandra Lily flows better, but your surname might affect that.

runningandjumping Thu 25-Jun-15 13:52:10

our surname goes with both. I love Alexandra but as I find Lily prettier than Allie (my fave shortening of Alexandra)

FatSwan Thu 25-Jun-15 13:56:39

Alexandra Lily flows well and is more timeless with Alexandra as the first name
