defender of mankind
It’s as if the sharp edges of the Greek name Alexandra were removed to create the delicate Italian-flavored Alessandra. It stems from Alexander, considered Greece’s greatest military general of all time. That’s why Europe embraced his name and created male and female offshoots (Alejandra, Sasha, Xander). Brazilian supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio puts a modern face on the name, which has been popular since the mid-1870s.
