"My wife and i have named our first daughter Alexis.
Most people where we live just go for very popular names.
We did say to everyone Alexis or lexi, but people just go for one or the other.
I must say that i do get a bit worried that people don`t get it or can`t say it right, and have noticed that it is hard when you say 'That`s Alexis`s toy, for example.
People have to ask twice, or call her Alexia, a...lexi,etc.....why do i worry ????
My wife on the other hand is totally confident of her name and announces it with great pride, and could give a dam if anyone says it wrong.
I think that is the point...It is not always easy being unusual, but Alexis is really is a wonderful name, and i should just stop being worried and just be confident about her name.
As if Alexis Carrington would of worried !" Apr. 15, 2008:
"I love the name Alexis because I'm the only one named Alexis in school, which is out of a lot of people.

"This name has its origin in Europe and is used for males. Because of its pronunciation in english, people started using it for female in UK and USA. Saint Alexis, the "Man of God" lived in Italy; he was canonized after a remarkable life." Feb. 17, 2008:
"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.

"Alexis is one of the beautiful names i have heard in the past three years. The first and only Alexis, is a female student in a Christian High School in GHana, and she has proven beyond every doubt that the name Alexis is a nice name. She has a nice personality and her relation with people is excellent. Unlike others, our students find the pronounciation of her name very easy! ALEXIS!" May. 10, 2007:
"I love my name,even if some people may mis-pronounce it,i just yell what it really is sounded like xD" May. 8, 2007:
"This is my name; for many, many years, I was very unhappy with it... For some reason, no one could seem to get the pronunciation/spelling right (I had to tell the stupid people many times that it is just said as ALEX-ISS, and spelt as ALEX-IS), and whenever an aquaintance tried to call me, I was always called "Alexia" or "Alex". But even thought it has become much more popular, there is only one other Alexis in my grade, and many of my friends (and boys!) say that it is a strong, sexy name. In fact, I am often called "Sexi Lexi", or just plain old Lexi or Lex."
