Francesca nn Fran is a great name. I like it more than the other two, but I think they are all nice names smile

In that order, although they are all nice so you can't really go wrong!

Alexandra or Francesca

Most likely noone is ever going to actually call her any of those names (although they are lovely) because they are really long.
So what nicknames do you like
Francesca: Fran, Chesca, Frankie, Cici, Chessie
Alexandra: Alex, Lexi, Alexis, Ali, xandra, Andy,
Georgina : George, Georgie, Gina, Gigi

Georgina nn Georgie.

I love Alexandra but don't like any of the shortenings. Don't like Francesca at all.

Prefer Georgia to Georgina, but Georgina is nice too.

What a lovely dilemma to have. Our shortlist was similar and we eventually agreed on Alexandra with Sasha as the diminutive & the second choice being Georgina with either Gina or Nina as the shortening.

Georgina nn George or Georgie

ManagedTeaCups Tue 13-Feb-18 08:19:22

Georgina is my favourite out of your list and love George/Georgie as nn but I also prefer Georgia out of the two.
Francesca is lovely not overly keen on the nn for it though.
Alexandra in full is nice
But not keen on Alex

Sugarpiehoneyeye Tue 13-Feb-18 08:23:31

I like Gina as a nick name.

AmberTopaz Tue 13-Feb-18 08:23:59

Georgie is my favourite of all the possible nicknames, but I think Fran goes best with DD1’s name.

Thanks all.
I’m erring towards Francesca or Georgina as two of our friends have called their sons Alexander and there might be too many Alexes kicking around.
Plus Amazon’s Alexa means there’s another Alex in the house already!
Shame as it’s a lovely name.

Would choose Frankie or Georgie as nicknames. I also like Cesca but DH doesn’t.

DorothysDress Tue 13-Feb-18 08:45:20

Georgina out of your list another one who prefers Georgia as well though.
I like Alexandra as well but if you don’t like Alex I would avoid.
Not keen on Francesca.

Francesca nn Cesca

lifechangesforeverinjuly Tue 13-Feb-18 09:17:20

Francesca - I'd definitely have that if DH would let me! Beautiful name with lovely choice of nicknames.

Much prefer Georgie over Frankie
