So DH and I had chosen the name Alexandra for our little girl, but recently found out that my SIL and BIL are naming their little girl that (and they're due 3 months before us). We were really bummed!
So now we're searching for other options. Our last name is very common so we want to avoid the super popular names. We also want something that is strong, sophisticated, and can be formal for her later in life.
What do you think of Veronica? Impressions, thoughts, like/dislike instantly? I am going back and forth, can't decide if I like it.
Thanks for your help, and if you have any other ideas, throw 'em at me, I'm all ears!
I think of Veronica from Archie! It's very common here in French Canada, but it's Veronique. It gets shortened to Vero (vaire oh) which I think is quite cute. I also think it could be a good strong professional name when she gets older.

Yep... I think of Archie and Veronica too (is that a Canadian thing to think that? LOL) Definitely not a big popular name though so no worries for you there I don't think... and I think it falls into the sophisticated/formal type of name you are looking for
I think it is a pretty name that you don't hear a ton.

I nursed my twins for 2years and 2 weeks! A little sad to be all done now.
I think it is a pretty name that meets all of your criteria. I also like the nickname Roni for it.

I love V names. Veronica is beautiful. (another Canadian with the Archie vision, lol)
I think it's very beautiful and feminine, but I would spell it Veronika instead, just to give it a little more of a uniqueness and an edge!
