My name is Alexia!! And I love it , I get quite annoyed though when'teache's asked if It's pronounced the Greek way like ❤️alex ciiiii a❤️ I normally say no because I prefer when It's pronounced alexia because it flows more nicely. I'm aware that my name is similar to the disease dyslexia but for those making fun of us and are named alexis or lexi dyslexic sounds similar too. In school no one has noticed that It's after a disease apart from me I'm in 8th grade btw- my parents wanted a name with A , my mother considered Amira, Adrianna, Angelica, And my dad said Stella because It's the name of his mother but then it rounded up too alexia because they wanted a name not in the family tree. I recommend this name entirely because it really brings out a lot.

01/14/2024 00:00:00

I LOVE the name Alexia! I named my daughter Alexia 7 years ago. I first heard the name from a character Katherine Heigl played. I have never met any other Alexia's, but heard a lot of Alexis, Alexa, and Alexi. The fact that It's a word for losing the ability to read, caused by brain lesions doesn't even phase me, because I liked the name way before I even knew that. It's a very pretty name and we get lots of compliments on it!

01/09/2024 10:40:52

My names Alexia and everybody ALWAYS gets it wrong. Its always Alexis, Alexa, or they think its short for Alexandra. I get Lexi a lot for short and I'm not exactly sure if I like the name or not. Ther's one other girl in my grade at my local high school with that name. Really weird though.

Are you about dyslexia. It's not as Alexia. This is a disease where people have a hard time reading and seeing there letters and numbers backwards. It not a horrible disease. With therapy children get better. How can you compare a beautiful name to that.

My husband and I were considering naming our daughter Alexia (I'm due in 4 months!), but someone just recently pointed out that It's actually listed in the dictionary as a type of disease: "The loss of the ability to read, usually caused by brain lesions. Also called word blindness." I can't beli've it!! We're actually reconsidering the name and will probably go with the Italian spelling, Alessia, or another name altogether. Wouldn't want to put my daughter thru any hurtful name calling!

10/09/2022 01:55:52

Hi, my name is Alexia and I was born in 2014. My wanted to name me something unique that'started with an A but she thought Alexis or Alexa was common. She like the name alexia bc it was different and bc in a different version it means defender or helper of mankind. Just a few years ago I found out what the actual definition of my name and I hated it and my friends teased me. I love my name but people who do not know me always pronounce it as Alexis or Alexa. What's even worse is that most people can't pronounce my last name. It's ❤️maricle❤️ pronounced ❤️markle❤️ like the princess (no relation) kind cool tho. They always pronounce it as ❤️miracle❤️ so people often call me Alexa miracle and I hate it. But I love my name and thank my mom for it. My friends and family also call me Lexi. When I was younger my nickname was ❤️Lexi Lou❤️ also my middle name is Danae and I think Alexia Danae has a nice ring to it.

Found out I'm having a baby girl and my husband and I have loved the name Alexia for about 4\5 years now so of course It's her name. We love the nickname Lexi but didn't care for Alexandria or Alexa and hated Alexis but loved Alexia since we first seen it!! I know its a disease but honestly didn't even know that until looking up more about the name'so I doubt any little kid at school will know.... Alexia is a beautiful name and I have already had so many compliments on it! :)
