Alegre in Spanish means happy. Between that and the Italian definition of "allegro" I have wondered why an allergy medication is named "Allegra". Is it a coincidence, probably not. I'm guessing those with seasonal allergies and congestion are subtly being encouraged that this medication will bring them happiness and pep in their steip if they take it. wink. However, for most, the side effects include drowsiness.

In my job, I occasionally become bored and wonder how the names of medications are decided. So please forgive me for digressing. raspberry LOL

  • No te preocupes. Su digresión era a la vez "alegro" y "alegre". - Moe Oct 29, 2009 flag

I believe that's an Italian word that means "happy" or "joyful". You could always try for an Italian translation website just to be sure.

It is an Italian musical term that is used in English "as is".

  • Not "as is". "Perhaps, Joyfully" or "with sprtit/animation" - samdie Oct 29, 2009 flag

It is an Italian word having the same meaning in English and in Spanish.

In English it is spelled with two l's. as "allegro".

In Spanish it is spelled with only one l as in "alegro".

To determine the meaning:

For Spanish

Place you cursor on the word “allegro”.

”Double-Click” on the word “allegro”.

In the narrow blue window that opens, “single click” on the word “allegro”.

For English:

Place you cursor on the palabra “alegro”.

”Double-Click” on the palabra “alegro”.

In the narrow blue window that opens, “single click” on the palabra “alegro”.
