A feminine form of the name 'Alexander' inspired by Alexander the Great. Has become very popular in recent years. It is usually said to mean "protector" or "protector of mankind".

Nice name, but soooo much better spelled Aleksa.
-- chihuahualover168  6/1/2006
I love the name Alexa because it's close to my name Alexis.
-- AlexisHaberly  10/9/2006
I like this name so much because even if it's cleary a girls name it has some boys feeling in it.
-- MuseOfMyths  11/19/2006
I love the name Alexa, it's short and sweet. :)

I think it is a cute name.
-- elysa  3/14/2007
It is also the name of a ship in the song by Billy Joel "Down Eastern Alexa".
-- Hamlet12287  8/20/2007
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!
-- Anonymous User  9/1/2007
Love this name - short, simple and cute.
-- xxlaurasxx  9/5/2007
Crazy name. Never heard of it. It's the name of the internet ranking service.
-- johann14  9/25/2007
My best friend's name is Alexa, and I think it's way classier than the name Alexis, which is still an awsome name.
-- hiya21  12/6/2007
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.
-- Delicious_Panda  1/30/2008
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.
-- slight night shiver  5/14/2008
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!
-- Sophannagh  8/23/2008
Very pretty - sweet yet strong.
-- WilderThanBridget  10/22/2008
From the name [Alexander] meaning "Protector of Mankind".
-- Anonymous User  11/10/2008
I like the way the name sounds! I prefer this name to Alexis.
-- Anonymous User  5/8/2009
I love this way for a nickname for Alexandra, better than "Alex". Alexa is for a girl and Alex is for a BOY!
-- Anonymous User  5/26/2009
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!
-- italiannames  5/30/2009
Alexis is much better sounding. I don't like the sound of Alexa at all!
-- becca_marciano  6/22/2009
I love this, much better than Alexandra. I also like Alexia and Alexis too.

Boring. Borderline trashy porn star name.
-- Aureliano  3/3/2010
Actually Alexa is a very classy, sweet name. Calling it a "trashy porn star" name is quite ignorant and frankly unintelligent.
-- Anonymous User  3/22/2010
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.
-- starz26  1/29/2011
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.
-- haileyrose  2/6/2011
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.

-- thesnowwhiterose  5/16/2013
Very pretty, but why not just name your daughter Alexandra? My friend is named Alexandra and we call her Alexa. :)
-- Gio123  8/7/2013
Means "protector of mankind".
-- Anonymous User  11/17/2013
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.
-- Alex11122  12/4/2013
In my opinion, the most beautiful name for a girl.

Alexa Goddard, an English pop and R&B singer. She has a song called "Marilyn".

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.
-- Oleg Karachi  1/10/2016
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.
-- Aimee_x  2/14/2016
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.
-- Anonymous User  4/24/2016
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.
-- LilyLol  5/6/2016
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.
-- RoseTintsMyWorld  5/10/2016
I like this name as a full name. I also like Alexandra and Alexia.
-- namefan5000  5/22/2016
If I used it I would spell it Aleksa. Alexa is a bit boring.
-- Eileen1209864  7/4/2016
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.
-- Sania01  7/21/2016
Also a Hungarian name. Pronounced: AW-lek-saw.

Alexa Curtis is an Australian singer who won The Voice Kids Australia in 2014. She won through Team Delta and is now signed to Universal Music Australia. She represented Australia in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2016. She finished 5th with 202 points.
-- cutenose  1/9/2017
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.

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