Alexis : Meaning, Origin and Popularity

Meaning and originality:

Alexis actually started as a masculine name. It stems from the same root that Alexander comes from. While Alexander means "protector of mankind", Alexis just merely means "to protect". Just  like Alexander, Alexis has a long history that precedes Christ. In the Greek literature, Alexis is always given to beautiful and charming boys who are wanted by another character in the stories. This name is also historically connected to a prominent ancient poet. Although Alexander the Great is the first person  that comes to our mind when we hear these "Alex" names, Alexis owes most of its popularity to a saint who lived in the 5th century. His presence in the Eastern Empire and Rome is why this name is very popular in Eastern Europe and in the more Western parts. The transformation of Alexis to a feminine name occurred in 1940s in the U.S. nowadays in most English-speaking countries his name is chosen for girls. While in other countries, this name is still chosen for boys as well. As a feminine name, Alexis is very popular in countries such as Canada, Australia, and the United States. When it comes to a name for boys, Alexis is very popular in France.

Here are some famous people named Alexis:

Alexis I of Russia (ruler)
Alexis (ancient Greek comic poet)
Alexis (ancient Greek sculptor)

I have a 3 year old daughter we named Alexis Leanna, we have another girl due in 7 weeks and still can't agree on anything because I won't settle for anything not complimentary to her name.

This is my name; it has an outdated feel to it. Having this name pretty much marks you as having been born in the 70s. Twenty years from now, it will be exclusively an "old lady name".

I love the name Alexis because I'm the only one named Alexis in school, which is out of a lot of people. The only bad thing about the name Alexis is that whenever I'meet someone new, they tend to refer back to me as Alex, Lexi, or Alexa. Almost every soccer coach I had has called me something different. Its kind of annoying yet still funny.

I don't know anybody called "Alexis" but I think It's a terrific name, perhaps the best. It's a shame It's being given mostly to girls these days, though.

I like my name and have grown into it. I am proud of what It'stands and even before I knew what it meant have always defended someone or something strongly. The meaning only makes me want to be better and I am happy that It's mine. I don't like it when people go by the nicknames of my name because I feel they should embrace their full name and what it means.

replay

I like my name because of my nicknames. I love to be called Lexi or Lex. Unfortunately, only my family calls me these names. Not even my friends call me it. I wish they would, I prefer Lex and Lexi. I also know what it feels like to be called Alex. It is the most annoying thing ever.

Its inter'sting to see other people making comments about the name of Alexis. My name is Alexis also. I hate the nickname "Alex". I'make sure to tell people upon first meetings. i've also been called by Al (my father-in-law) has thick Cuban accent so he's kinda lazy to pronounce it. It's hilarious. Other nicknames Lexy and Lexie. One of my teacher loves my name and always calls out "Alexis Sue". i've worked with 5 Alexis(s). One was an african american (she was named after Alexis Carrington) I was born way before "Dynasty" show started. A Jewish girl named, Alexis, and a hispanic girl named Alexis as well. I'm blonde and brown eyed gal. Of course, I'm not happy that my name is getting popular :-(
