Spanish-speaking fans of the Mexican telenovela “Alondra” helped make this girls' name popular in a big way in 1995, the year the series aired. It also got a boost a decade later from a Grammy-nominated Mexican singer called Alondra, which is appropriate because Alondra means “lark,” a bird that likes to belt out a tune while flying. This smooth, lyrical name—which is the diminutive form of Alejandra (Alexandra in English-speaking countries)—is still a favorite for Mexican baby girls, but it’s too pretty to be limited to one country or culture.
