I don’t know any so would like others opinions on the name Roxanna please.

I know a Roxane. I find it very pretty. The Roxanna variant a bit less so for me but all in all I like it. Quite unusual.

Love it! Like Alexander the Great's wife.

Disclaimer: I decided when I was little that that would be the name of my daughter if I had one, so I may be biased!

An-na or Ah- na?

I prefer Roxanne (Roxie).

I like it, but I'd spell it Roxana, as in the title of the Daniel Defoe novel, and that to me is the more standard spelling.

Love it

I love it!

I like that it could be Roxy or Annie for short.

My DD said that she has just made friends with a Roxana and I thought "wow what a unusual, pretty name".

It's not so unusual to get nonplussed looks but different enough to not come across another one potentially in her class. Go for it OP smile

I love Roxanna! It's a great stand alone name but also has cute nicknames (Roxy, Anna) I also prefer it to Roxanne.

I love Roxy/Roxie as a nn so for that reason I like it, prefer Roxanne to Roxanna but both are nice smile

Thanks everyone! Seems to be all good so far!

It would be like Rox Anna @Joinourclub

I think it's a pretty name, but can't get past the immediate "Roxanne, you don't have to put on the red light" connection myself. Part Police, part Moulin Rouge.

If you don't mind that though, I'd say go for it.

I really like it! & prefer it to Roxanne

Me too. I think Roxanna with an sightly sidesteps that, but unfortunately Roxy/i has to be one of the top chavviest names in the country, along with Lexi.

Don't like it.

Reminds me of Roxanne, the song, which has wholly negative connotations. And, as someone else said, Roxy is notoriously chavvy.

I don’t like it. But thankfully we all have different tastes smile

I really like Roxana, but not Roxanna, though I can't quite explain why.
