This is more like a feminine name to me. Is it the I, or what? Aleskey is better.

I'm not sure why it seems feminine to you, but in Russia, this is a strictly masculine name. It ends in a consonant (-й), and is, therefore, masculine.

As for my impression of the name, I like it. Not much because of its association with the last tsarevich of Russia (he was apparently very bratty, as he was babied due to his position in the imperial family and his hemophilia), but simply because it's nice sounding. Never liked Alexander or Alex, but this is very nice.

I met a Scottish man with this name. Quirky. I love it, it's a great alternative to Alexander or Alex. I prefer this spelling to Aleksey, not sure why.

This name is so great, but the association with the haemophillic boy who died is very strong. I love this name because I love that story of the Romanovs.

Alexei Romanov was the fifth child and only son of Czar Nicholas and Alexandra of Russia, the last Emperor and Empress of that country. Alexei was killed, in 1918, at age 14, along with his family, in a surprise execution in a house in Ekatersburg, where the family was being held captive during World War 1. His older sisters were Olga, Tatiana, Marie, and Anastasia (the last of whom was rumored to have survived the massacre -- smuggled out by a sympathedic captor).

Correcting everyone. Two bodies are missing, one is either Anastasia or Marie, and the other is Alexei's.

To add to the previous comment, Alexei was a hemophiliac, which means his blood didn't clot properly.
