  • Not nice. You know Allegra is a very old Italian name originating from the musical term Allegro, that was ripped off by a pharmaceutical company.

  • I think it's sad people are so ignorant they don't recognize foreign words when they see them and can't see beyond brand names. What a fucked up troll of a question.

  • I actually think Allegra is a beautiful name. Its been around for centuries, and has quite a romantic history (think Lord Byron's illegitimate daughter).... I dont think of the allergy med at all...

  • wow. I am glad my baby was a boy last time because he would of been Allegra Penelope if he had been a girl and I would be getting ridiculed by people for my choice to use a very pretty cheerful name just because some big wig exec decided it was best to use it as a name for a drug.
