It may all be for naught as we find out the sex tomorrow....

It's really nice, I know an Italian Alessia and I think it's an unusual name 😊

ClubTropicanaDrinks Wed 27-Apr-16 11:46:33

I worked with an Alessia (Italian) and she was lovely so it's a yes from me!

LemonBreeland Wed 27-Apr-16 11:46:55

I like it. I know a 3 year old Alessia. Her parents are italian though.

Blackpoollassy Wed 27-Apr-16 11:48:21

no problem there as there's italian in our family! brill thanks
can you think of any unfortunate nicknames?

ABitAsleep Wed 27-Apr-16 12:46:19

I like Alissa with the nn Lissie - So maybe Lessie would be her nn?

OneMagnumisneverenough Wed 27-Apr-16 12:48:19

I know one, also of Italian extraction. Known as Messy - it suits her.

TheGirlOnTheLanding Wed 27-Apr-16 12:48:35

Lovely name, esp if you have the Italian connection. Alessandra is lovely too.

LadyAntonella Wed 27-Apr-16 13:09:08

I like it and love the nn Ally for a girl. Also Less or Lessie maybe.

LadyAntonella Wed 27-Apr-16 13:10:48

I love TheGirl's suggestion of Alessandra too. Gorgeous.

Blackpoollassy Wed 27-Apr-16 13:17:34

Was also thinking of Alessandra but wondered if it was too much of a tongue-twister to the British tongue!

LadyAntonella Wed 27-Apr-16 13:39:22

Hmmm I don't think Alessandra is a tongue twister. It trips off the tongue quite easily (easier than a lot of traditionally British names IMHO). I guess it depends on where you live (wouldn't be Blackpool by any chance)? grin

Sophronia Wed 27-Apr-16 14:02:42

I like it a lot, and love Alessandra.

Blackpoollassy Wed 27-Apr-16 14:04:26

Now that would be too obvious Antonella wink (also another great Italian name BTW)

LadyAntonella Wed 27-Apr-16 14:08:29

Why thank you! smile

So, just found out we are indeed having a girl! So can search for Italian names in earnest now!
Shortlist so far


OneMagnumisneverenough Thu 28-Apr-16 10:20:03

Lovely names smile and congrats.


Blackpoollassy Thu 28-Apr-16 11:43:44

ooo love Elisa, thank you

KoalaDownUnder Thu 28-Apr-16 15:34:43

Alessia is beautiful. Love it.

Ilaria (my absolute favourite name ever)

A4Document Fri 29-Apr-16 02:01:47

I like Luisa and Alessandra smile

julfin Fri 29-Apr-16 07:16:39

I love Caterina, Luisa and Elisa ( and the rest are nice too).

Only problem with Luisa is that you'll constantly have to tell people "it's without an O".
