  • "i have lived with the name alexia for years and my friends call me lexie . i have a love hate reltionship with it because people call me allecia or alexa and i have even been compared to the amazon alexa. i also love it because it is different and original and i can have so many nicknames like alex , lex, lexie,lexi, alexi. it also means defender of men in greek which i love."

  • "My name is Alexia!! And I love it , I get quite annoyed though when teachers asked if it?s pronounced the Greek way like ?alex ciiiii a? I normally say no because I prefer when it?s pronounced alexia because it flows more nicely. I?m aware that my name is similar to the disease dyslexia but for those making fun of us and are named alexis or lexi dyslexic sounds similar too. In school no one has noticed that it?s after a disease apart from me I?m in 8th grade btw- my parents wanted a name with A , my mother considered Amira, Adrianna, Angelica, And my dad said Stella because it?s the name of his mother but then it rounded up too alexia because they wanted a name not in the family tree. I recommend this name entirely because it really brings out a lot." Dec. 22, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "Hi, my name is Alexia and I was born in 2002. My wanted to name me something unique that started with an A but she thought Alexis or Alexa was common. She like the name alexia bc it was different and bc in a different version it means defender or helper of mankind. Just a few years ago I found out what the actual definition of my name and I hated it and my friends teased me. I love my name but people who do not know me always pronounce it as Alexis or Alexa. What?s even worse is that most people can?t pronounce my last name. It?s ?maricle? pronounced ?markle? like the princess (no relation) kind cool tho. They always pronounce it as ?miracle? so people often call me Alexa miracle and I hate it. But I love my name and thank my mom for it. My friends and family also call me Lexi. When I was younger my nickname was ?Lexi Lou? also my middle name is Danae and I think Alexia Danae has a nice ring to it." May. 7, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "people always call me Alexa or Alexis and if you can relate then im sorry. But i love my name nobody in my school has my name. And the name Alexia means defender of men, helper.

  • "While it may sound good on the surface, don't name your child this: Alexia is the loss of the ability to read, caused by brain damage. Look it up in the dictionary. If you want to name your daughter something close to this, stick with Alexandra, Alexa, or Alexis." Jun. 14, 2009: Report as inappropriate

Also called word blindness." I can't believe it!! We're actually reconsidering the name and will probably go with the Italian spelling, Alessia, or another name altogether.
