Meaning of Lexi

Lexi is one of many forms of pets that developed from the female name Alexandra (such as Alexis, Alexa, Alex, and Lexie). Alexandra in turn is the feminine variant of the name Alexander, which is the Latin form of the Greek name "Alexandros". The meaning of the name is interpreted from the Greek "alexein" meaning "defend" plus "andros" which translates to "man, warrior" in a relational or possessive form. Hence the meaning: 'defender of men or humanity'. Alexander the Great was King of Macedonia in the 4th century BC.; that he would have a hard time finding a more legendary military general than this man. Although Alexander is an old name, the English-speaking counties did not adopt the female Latinate Alexandra until the late 19th century, when it was introduced by the Scandinavians and Eastern Europe, where the name was already in wide use. The name Lexie or Lexi did not become an independently given name until the late 20th century even though it had been in use as a nickname before that.


The name Lexi first appeared on the US naming charts for girls in 1993. Although Lexie was in sporadic use before Lexi on the charts, Lexi is the much more preferred spelling. Lexi has done quite well on the charts. In less than 20 years, the name has advanced more than 700 positions on the charts. She hasn't made the Top 200 list yet, but she still seems to be showing forward momentum. They like this name in Idaho, in particular; was ranked 73rd in our Potato State. Lexi is a happy, optimistic name. Like Alexis, Lexi is a "pretty girl name" but with a tomboyish edge. Of course, she'll probably hear “Sexy Lexi” most of her life, which isn't exactly an insult. The name is more modern and current of Alexandra, but not as pretentious as Alexis. Lexi has spunk and sexiness all in one.

To whom it may concern, This a great website! I'll give you a little history behind the name "Dax"... Most of the "Daxs" were born in'the 1982s. This is due to a popular novel by Harold Robbins "The Adventures" (now a movie). The character DAX was born into a wealthy family. The father was poor but highly intelligent. The mother is aristocratic. The'setting was in south america. The'story was a tragedy yet men who were watching the movie wanted to be a DAX. When'they had sons, it was their opportun'ty to use that name. The name according to the novel is composed of two other names... Diogenes (Greek philosopher obssessed with truth... lived in extreme poverty) and Alexander the Great (the Macedonian king who conquered all of asia). You therefore combine the two... and the name means "with truth, you shall conquer the world". Eventhough the book and movie are fiction, at one point during the Hellenistic era, in'the City of Corinth, Diogenes and Alexander did meet. Diogenes told Alexander... "get out of my way, your blocking my sunshine"... (see Europe, A History... by Norman Davies). Now that's our etymology. As far as DAX being a female character in a science fiction'tv series... (Battlestar Gallactica?)... I really don't know where that idea came from. ---DAX---

We named our daughter Lila (LIE-la) back in March of 2013. We were very surprised when (a) many people mispronounced it (LEE-la), and (b) quite a few other people in our town named their girls Lila too (or Lilah). People often'try to spell her name Leila, which to my eye looks like LAY-la (another popular name in our parts!).
