Hello, thanks for reading my question smile

What are some feminine nicknames for the name Alexandra that might fit nicely with our last name, Sargent ?

Thank you!

Lexie? Alexa? I wanted to name our daughter Alexandra but DH doesn't like traditionally male / ambiguous nicknames, so was put off by the potential to shorten to Alex.

Allie / Ally / Ali
Lexi / Lexie

we have an Alex called Zsa, as her little brother could not say Alexandra when learning to talk, and it has stuck. Lovely name

We call our Alexandra Allie.
It is in culture to name the baby full name and then call short name which in my country is Sasha but that did not catch up with my English-speaking relatives. The reason being is for them to get options with they name. They are called nick names when children, it stays like that with friends, but as they grow they use their full name to add formality.
When my daughter started to learn to write her name her teacher insisted to write Alexandra and not Allie, because it was more challenging. We thought it was a great idea and again gave her options.
These are some ideas, may be call her alexandra and let your husband a nickname to call her everyday.
Alexandra is a beautiful name.

We have an Alexia who has always been Lexie. She quite often gets called Lexie-loo which then in turn becomes lulabelle! smile

I love Alexandra and shortened or not it is a very beautiful name. Lexi would work for me.

I like Alexandra and it gives lots of nickname potential

The Alexandra I know is Sasha.
Love both names.

I love Alexandra and a little girl I know goes by Andie which I hadn't considered but really love it. I like Allie/Ally too smile

Ooh Andie is lovely. My favourite is Allie.
I love Alexandra but so worried about her being called Alex which I don't find very feminine. I did consider Alexia or Alexis to avoid her being called Alex.
