Hey so I have been reading some comments on how this is “tacky” “trashy” etc, etc and I just wanted to point out a few things. (Before you go bash me I just wanted to say DO YOU KNOW A NAME DOESN'T IDENTIFY A PERSON?! Most of these comments make me ashamed to be apart of the human race. It's okay to say I think this name is bad, tacky or trashy, but for this name it’s not the case. I mean look at it... well it’s not THAT bad I’ve seen worse. We all know the new Amazon al or whatever it’s called, called “Alexa” listen: not everybody owns an Alexa or wants to buy one. This was a name before the Amazon thing even came out. (Well... if you want to name your child Alexa go ahead if you want to name your child DaQuan go ahead we’re not gonna stop you. Comments are for the freedom of speech not to say the parents are “Uneducated” or “trash”.

Probably should avoid this name right now due to jokes about Alexa, the Amazon AI.

I was rooting for this name as I like it better than Alexis, but the device named Alexa (And people have to call out its name to get it to work which will be confusing to human Alexas within earshot and maybe even confusing to the device when the human Alexa is called for.) killed that name! Thanks Silicon Valley!

My name is Alexandra. In my school there is another girl called Alexandra and she uses the name Alex. Last year we had a guy in our grade with the name Alexander. He also used Alex. I also have a cousin with the name Alexander and he uses Alex too! Along with his dad. I never felt like Alex was my nickname. Now that I’m entering high school I want my own nickname and I think the name Alexa is right for me.

My youngest daughter's name is Alexa Star. She's almost 3. Her name is simply beautiful and fits her really well.

This is my name and I adore it! I do not think that it sounds stripper-esque, trashy, or unintelligent. I believe that the name Alexa is very classy yet short and sweet - a name that I would definitely consider naming a future daughter if it was not my own already. I am still young - fifteen years old - so my opinion may change in the future... Yet as of now I think that my name is one of the prettiest, with such a strong meaning behind it.

If I used it I would spell it Aleksa. Alexa is a bit boring.

Alexa is a good name because it's nice on kids and adults. Might be a bit upsetting if it got confused with Alexis a lot but it has nice nicknames that go with it like Lexie, I personally don't like the nickname Lex. I just don't and Alex sounds too much like a boys name, so other than those two nicknames, Alexa is a nice name. Also like Eileen said above I do prefer Aleksa.

I like this name as a full name. I also like Alexandra and Alexia.

It's cute as a nickname for Alexandra, but as a full name it sounds very immature and little girl-ish. I encourage Alexa strictly as a nickname; or you could just go with something similar, like Alicia or Alyssa, for a full name.

I hate this name so much, especially when you call her Lexi because the name Alexa is already a stripper sounding name, so just adding Lexi makes it worse.

This name is simply beautiful. Every positive adjective can be used to describe it. If you are considering this name for your little girl, some combos I have that you more than welcome to take a look at are:

Alexa Claire
Alexa Paige
Alexa Caroline
Alexa Charlotte
Alexa Josephine
Alexa Morgan.

I personally love the name Alexa and I want to change my name to it when I'm older. I don't know much about it, but I would just like to say to anyone who dislikes the name that I think it is very beautiful and unique.

Apparently Alexa is more frequently used as a legal name than a nickname for Alexandra. Now I know why Alexandra's never get called Alexa.

I think it's a sweet name for little girls, it's my name, but I always shorten it to Alex because I'm a tomboy, and it's annoying reminding teachers. If you name a child Alexandra, they can shorten it to Alexa if they wish, but stick with Alex. My full names Alexa Mia, and people think it's sweet, but as I said, it doesn't suit me.

Very pretty, but why not just name your daughter Alexandra? My friend is named Alexandra and we call her Alexa. :)

I have a cousin named Alexa and we often shorten it to Lexa. She's very tall, skinny, and athletic. I think her name suits her really well.

If you were to name your daughter Alexa or Alexis and she doesn't like it, there are so many different nicknames she can use instead. This is something important to look at when deciding on a name. Personally I prefer Alexa at the moment.

I think Alexa is a great nickname for the name Alexandria/Alexandra. I only like the nickname Alex for the boys name Alexander. So I like Alexa for girls and Alex for boys.

Actually Alexa is a very classy, sweet name. Calling it a "trashy porn star" name is quite ignorant and frankly unintelligent.

I love this name! Cute nicknames would be Alex, Lexa, Lexie. I do not like the name Alexis at all, this is more cute and sounds like a friendly name!

To me it brings to mind a tough, tarty, brainless blonde girl - popular, but stupid and senseless. If your name is Alexandra, choose Ally or Xandra or something else!

Bah, I don't like the sound of this name. It sounds lazily constructed, unimaginative, and utterly bland, and it's not even pretty. There are far too many names like this anyway.

My name is Alexa, and I personally love it. Nicknames I usually go by that are derived from it are Lex and Lexa. To me the name gives off a "nice person" tone.

My best friend's name is Alexa, and I think it's way classier than the name Alexis, which is still an awsome name.

My name is Alexa and I honestly can't think of a name that I'd rather have! It gets shortened to Lex or Lexie which I think is nice too. I'm not keen when people call me Alexis by mistake though!
