I just came across this name, it's John Leguizamo's daughter's name. I think it's very pretty! It means "joy" in Latin. I personally wouldn't use it, but what do you think of it?

I have a friend with this name, but she goes by Allie. The name is not my style, and reminds me of the medicine... but I can see how it could be cute if the person goes by the NN Allie.

I am used to it because it is my SIL's name. I think it is OK but I wouldn't use it.

I agree, it reminds me of the medicine.

And maybe I'm alone on this but it reminds me of Viagra too So I could never use it.

I really like it, but wouldn't use it because of the association with the medicine. Stupid allergy pill company! haha.

I think it'd be better if there wasn't a medicine called Allegra. I too like the Ally/Allie nn but I think I'd use Allison/Alison for that.
