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.

Out of those two? Chloe.

But I prefer Alexis to Alexi and would choose that over Chloe.

Chloe (though I do love PP's suggestion of Alexandra and also like Alexis)

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. wink.gif

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.

Chloe

I thought Alexi was a boy's name?

Alexi is a male name to my ears. So Chloe.

I like Lexie and Chloe, with Chloe in front by a smidge. Not a fan of Alexis, alexi or Alexandra

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.

Yes, I'm quite fond of all the -e ending Chloe/Zoe/Phoebe/Xanthe type names.

Out of your two options OP, I prefer Chloe.  

I am quite a fan of the name Chloe.

#22 HRH Countrymel

Alexandra

I'm not a fan of Chloe (sorry to all the Chloes out there nothing personal) and Alexi /Alexei is a boy's name.

Specifically this boy's name...

#23 Ingrid the Swan

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.
