"My son's name is Alexis. He is now 15 and says he doesn't like it b/c it's a girl name. He usually goes my Alexi. When I go to school or try to make a doctors appt. they always refer to him as a her which I promptly correct. We are Hispanic and this is generally known as a boy's name. Hopefully he'll appreciate his name as he gets older." Aug. 27, 2009:

"I am a 27 year old male named Alexis. Growing up i was teased a bit because people said it was a girls name, unless they were from a country outside of the U.S, in which case they thought of it as a boys name. I now love my name, and always liked that I was named after the great prize fighter Alexis Arguello. My whole life everybody, including my family has called me "Lex", which is a great nickname. So despite the teasing, it has become something I am very proud of and that I get nothing but compliments for. It's a name that builds character." Mar. 3, 2010:
