  • "I'm 16 and my parents named me Alexa Taylor because they wanted a name that meant strong, and a name that could be said in multiple languages. In my grade, there are 5 other girls with my name so it gets a little annoying when we have the same classes. I've been called Alexis, Alexia etc. My name isn't that difficult to remember, but sometimes (all the time) they forget" Jun. 11, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Alexa and I love love love my name. Not many other people have it. But the bad thing about it is they tend to pronounce my name "Alexia" "Alex-UH" "lexis" "Alexis". But other than that I love it so much. People always tell me how pretty and unique my name is. I have not yet met any other Alexa." May. 5, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "I named my daughter Alexa... she is 5 now and to this day I am still completely in love with her name. It is unique because not a lot of people have it, but it isn't weird or odd either. I call her Lex or Lexa for short. She is called Lexi sometimes... I HATE it and I always correct people. If I wanted people to call her Lexi I would have named her Alexis. I often get people who spell it Alexia, which I don't understand. But other than that there isn't much confusion. I think it is a beautiful name!" Feb. 15, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "My sister's name is Alexa. She is thirteen and model/actress. We call her Lexie, or Lex." Oct. 30, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Alexa. I'm 15 and ever since I was little people can never get into their heads that it's "Alexa" and not "Alexis" or "Alexia". I'm so used to it now that I answer when people call me by the wrong name I answer and that's so sad. My parents and family have called me "Lex" or "Lexa" since I was younger. Now that I am growing up people have started to call me "Lexii". I can easily tell how long you have known me if you call me "Lexii" or "Lex". But for me I think I understand why people call me "Alexis". I am African American and there are not many African American girls named Alexa from what I have seen. African Americans are not used to the name Alexa, but Alexis. And then when I correct them, they look at me confused. But yes I love my name, even though alot of people don't even know it's my name. Haha." Jun. 9, 2010: Report as inappropriate

I think it's one of the most beautiful names I have ever heard, i dont know why but I have always loved my name. I usually get called 'Lexa', 'Lex', or 'Lexi' by my friends and family, any yes they have tried calling me Alex or Alexis but I usually didnt respond (mostly because there are people in my grade named Alex and Alexis) so they gave up and stuck to the original nick-names. =)" Mar. 19, 2010: Report as inappropriate

I've only met three other people with my name, and I'm currently in school with one of them. We've made it a thing: "Hi Alexa!" "Hi Alexa!" I thought it'd be cool at first, but now it's just plain confusing. Now I know how all the Andrews feel... I don't go by anything, but I'd like to be either Ally or Lexy, which is what my friend calls me. Overall, though, when it comes down to it, I really do love my name."

  • "I have the name Alexa and I love it. I have only met one other person with the name Alexa. Also, I can never find anything with my name on it. People call me "Alexis" or "Alexia" and I'm like, "It's Alexa". You would think that people could remember such an easy name, but some people love how unique and beautiful it is. When I'm in school and an Alexis gets announced over the speaker, at first I get really scared, but then I'm cool. I would never change my name because it is AMAZING.:)<3" Nov. 2, 2015: Report as inappropriate
