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.

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.
