I named my daughter Alexa due to my obsession with the name of Alexandria but it being too long, and her paternal family who are Greek. We call her Lex/Lexi, but Ally and Alex are still on the board!

This is my name and I really like it - especially now that I am older. There aren't very many of us and it is different without being wierd.

My name is Alexa, and I absolutely love it! It's different, and uncommon, but still classic. I highly recommend it!!! :D

I named my daughter Alexa... she is 5 now and to this day I am still completely in love with her name. It is unique because not a lot of people have it, but it Isn't weird or odd either. I call her Lex or Lexa for short. She is called Lexi sometimes... I HATE it and I always correct people. If I wanted people to call her Lexi I would have named her Alexis. I often get people who spell it Alexia, which I don't understand. But other than that there Isn't much confusion. I think it is a beautiful name!

When I was a little girl, I was the only Hannah I knew. But now that I am older, there are a bunch of little girls that have my name which makes me really angry because now everyone thinks Hannah is a common name. Despite its recent popularity, I still really like it!

My daughter is Alexa. She was originally called Alexis when first born, but 23 years ago everyone thought it was after the Carringtons as Dynasty was popular, so it was quickly changed. Often it is thought that we have abbreviated it from Alexandra, and have to insist that it is not. She is called Lex by her family.
