Alexi or Chloe?
Our DS's name is Jacob. I really like Chloe, but I also really like Alexi and the fact it can be shortened to Ali, Alex or Lexie (whichever she prefers when shes older)
Girls names are too hard!

I am not fond of either but I'd probably pick Alexi. Alexandra however is MILES in front.
Posted 05 December 2012 - 04:12 PM
Out of those two? Chloe.
But I prefer Alexis to Alexi and would choose that over Chloe.
Posted 05 December 2012 - 04:13 PM
Chloe (though I do love PP's suggestion of Alexandra and also like Alexis)
Posted 05 December 2012 - 04:17 PM
Chloe. Nothing wrong with Chloe.
Alexa/Alexandra would win but Alexi does not.
I know I am being a Russki but I cannot hear anything feminine in Alexi as a given name. I don't think Alexa really changes much as far as available nicknames or even length (unlike the otherwise lovely Alexandra/Alexandrina) but my soul would rest a bit easier.
EDIT: I remembered who I was trying to think of, aside from all the men named Alexei I have known, it was Alexi Laiho.

I prefer Alexa to Alexi and Alexandra/Alexandria more than that.

Alexi sounds too masculine to me and I'm not a fan of Chloe either.
Alexandra is great though and you can use Ally, Lexi and Alex still.

I like Lexie and Chloe, with Chloe in front by a smidge. Not a fan of Alexis, alexi or Alexandra
Posted 05 December 2012 - 04:28 PM
Sorry but I'm another who thinks of Alexi as a boy name - Alexis would be better.
Not a fan of Chloe personally but it's an ok name.

neither, sorry. there are thousands of lovely girls names.....much easier imo then naming boys.

Chloe is beautiful and it is such a pretty name to look at as well as say.
Posted 05 December 2012 - 04:46 PM
Out of your two options OP, I prefer Chloe.
I am quite a fan of the name Chloe.
Posted 05 December 2012 - 05:08 PM
I don't really like Chloe so Alexi wins by default.
I really like tge Alex- family of names and would use Alexander for a boy if Alex didn't sound cartoon-villain-comical with my surname. In saying that, I would prefer Alexandra, Alexis and Alexa - and probably even just Alex or Lexie - to Alexi.
