One of Eleanor of Aquitaine's daughters was Alix. Queen Victoria's dear daughter, Alice, married a German and changed her name to Alix. Her dear daughter, Alix, changed her name to Alexandra when she married Tsar Nicholas II. It's a name with a lot of history behind it.

My name is Alix, pronounced a-LEEKS (my parents chose it as a nickname for Alexandra that would work in French or English, our 2 family languages), which I think sounds much prettier than AL-iks. I have met 2 other American Alixes who pronounce their name a-LEEKS, and maybe 10 who say it AL-iks.

As a feminine name, it is a variant of Alice (as Beatrix is to Beatrice).

This is a very cool name, innovative and unique. I think I like it better as a masculine name, but it is nice as a feminine name too!

Hey this name is close to mine, so I think it's AWESOME. My name is Allix by the way. It was found in the world's greatest baby book. All I know about the name "Alix" is that some Russian empress, or something, had the full name Alexandra and went by Alix for short.

Alix is a German variant of 'Alice'. Named for her mother Princess Alice, Alix of Hesse, grandaughter of Queen Victoria of England, was the wife of Czar Nicholas II of Russia, who was murdered, along with her husband and five children, in 1918.

The second of Eleanor of Aquitaine (later Queen of England)'s daughters with Louis VII was named Alix.

Popular in Norman times, the name was then pronounced more closely to modern "Alice" and was an early variant of that name.

To me, it has more appeal as a girls name. Short but very pretty. My name is Fleur but I was almost named Alix. I think my name's fine but I like Alix better.

My daughter's name is Alice and we call her Alix (pronounced a-LEEKS).

Alix is also an old French form of Alice.

For instance:
"[Alys] is also known as Alaïs, Adélaïde, Adèle, Alais, or Alix." [noted -ed]

What an interesting name! What an interesting person this child might grow up to be. But Alix is a tough name to live up to. It might be better to name them something more neutral, like Alixandra, and let them grow into an Alix.

My friend didn't want to go by her name Alexandra, but didn't want to spell it plainly like A-L-E-X so she decided to go by Alix, but say it as "Alex".

Agatha Christie mentioned a lady named Alix in "The Dead Harlequin". I personally prefer this name above the usual Alice because of the unique touch the "x" gave.

Alix is a lovely name, and not too common today.

Alexandra Feodorovna Romanova, last Tsaritsa of Russia and wife of Nicholas II, the last Emperor of the Russian Empire, was referred to as 'Alix' by her family.

It is pronounced ah-LEEKZ. It is a beautiful variant of Alice. But it looks nicer spelled Alixe.

Maria Alix (1898-1898) was the oldest daughter of King Frederick Augustus III of Saxony and his wife Luise. She was stillborn. Her younger sister (1901-1990) was named after her.

French pronunciation is a-LEEKS.

When I found this name somewhere else it said it was unisex and a variant of Alex.

Alexandra Feodorovna's real name was Alix Victoria Helena Louise Beatrice. She was not well liked and was called "the German woman." She changed her name to Alexandra after she became a Russian orthodox and her son "Alexei". Alexis was named after her. She was hated after WWI started, and was never well liked. She was the granddaughter of Queen Victoria.

I am an Alexandra but generally known as Alix. My mother once told me that with Alex you couldn't tell whether that person was an Alexander (male) or Alexandra (female). Alix is the female shortening and the male one Alex or Alec. Even so, we Alix(es) can claim an air of mystery!
Alix of England  10/26/2016
My name is Alix, and let me tell you, I hated my name when I was little. Not only was it something that I had to get used to spelling for people, other kids, especially boys, kept teasing me for having a "boy's" name. As I grew older, I researched it like crazy in order to find something about my name to be proud of. Now that I'm older, people always say "Oooh, I like how that's spelled!" or "That's an interesting name!" When I come back and say, "It's a medieval French version of Alice," they're even more interested! Now I love my name - it's unique and classy and strong and bearing an incredible history!

My name is Alexandria and my mother gave me the nickname Alix so that people would not get my name of Alexandria confused with the name Alexandra. She exchanged the e for an I so that it would be a little reminder.

Alix Wilton Regan is an English actress and model.

I like Alix because it is not a boy name and seems like a diminutive, but is a full name for a female. I only like it on girls, and I don't like Alex for either gender, I prefer Xander. I think Alix sounds like the name of a woman with big green eyes and silky brown hair.
XironDarkstar  10/7/2017
I really like this name due to the association with the last Russian tsarina. It's a shame that people will probably assume it's a nickname and not a full name.
