What do you think - which name would raise more eyebrows- Alexandra or Anastasia?
Thanks! Concerning Keira - to be honest I only know Keira Knightly. I am not sure what's the history/origin behind that name. Is it Celtic, Russian or smth else? I find conflicting info on that name in the internet.
Is Anastasia professional sounding you think?
Alexandra can be also called Allie, Alexa, Sandra, Sasha
Thanks! May I ask what's your fav nn for Anastasia. And what don't you like in Alexandra.
haha sorry I'll know for next time! Thanks for your input.
Oh ok I see. I thought Valeria/Valerie is quite an international name. Valeria probably sounds more latin.
Maybe Barbara is more suitable/common.
Hah I think one can think of a hurtful nickname/mnemonic almost to any name. Does your friend work in a us school? (Just curious).
I also like Alexandra , the only concern is that the name sounds too 'masculine', which means the individual will acquire similar traits during the lifetime...
Concerning Valeria.. To be honest never had the association with the medicine. My grandmother used to take it too though :)
Which name would make people feel less surprised do you think ? - Barbara or Valeria ? (US/UK area) I know you dislike Barbara :)
Dear ladies, thanks everyone for all really helpful and 'professional' replies!
I'd like to ask another question and would love your honest opinions!
Which of these three names do you prefer?
I am very much looking forward to your reples.
Thanks so much for that fascinating post!
Thank you so much, could never think someone would treat my post in such a kind and responsible way! Actually I've been also thinking about your response for a few days now! "Buried in the past", "burden of a name" - can't get these words out of mind!:)
to EVie - haha true, difficult to believe that the same person likes both names! Actually I've only started thinking of Barbara recently, never considered it before. Thanks for your response.
Didn't think of the 'Be' thing, thanks for pointing that out! True, Barbara is quite fashionable internationally.
To HungarianNameGeek- Oh big thank you ! Nice to read that you like Barbara!!
Thanks for sharing your opinion!
For some reason I prefer spelling Keira. The name looks richer to me if you know what I mean.
Thanks, they are really completely different, I somehow manage to like both
Thanks a lot. And I completely forgot about DS9 connection!
Thanks for cheer up post !
Thank you everyone for the advice. Is it more dated than Karen/Sharon/Diana etc.?
I know Barbara is dated but is it more dated then let's say Karen/Susan/Diana etc.?
