Comments for ALEKSEY:

This name is ADORABLE. It was the name of the Russian czar Peter the Great's son and heir (sometimes translated as 'Alexei'), who he later executed on account of his weakness and disinterest in his inherited country.

Aleksey Romanov was the youngest child and only son of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia and Alexandra of Hesse. He inherited haemophilia from his mother Alexandra, a condition which could be traced back to her maternal grandmother Queen Victoria. Aleksey was a month shy of his fourteenth birthday when he was executed on July 17, 1918 by Bolsheviks along with the rest of his family. In 2000, he and his family were canonized by the Russian Orthodox Church.

I like this name. It's different and very rarly used in the USA for boys. I only know two guys with this name. Hope to name my 1st born son Aleksey Robert (after the last Tsarevich and after my grandpa).

I live in Russia and I can say that this name is widespread here. But now it's becoming less popular as 20-30 years ago.

Unfortunately, short of living in Russian, this will be a hard name to swallow. Why? Not necessarily itself being the problem... simply that (especially in the United States) "Aleksey" will be viewed as a "kre8tiv" variant-- an uneducated decision. Regardless of that fact, if you possess a true Russian surname I believe that this could be pleasant. "Aleksey Anderson"? I an afraid not. "Aleksey Dobrokhatova"? Very desirable.
May I add: This should be strictly a male title. I apologize, women... but that opinion should be obvious of reason.
