Alpha comes from the Phoenician letter Alef, having a sibling in modern day Hebrew, which comes from the Semitic root "alp," meaning ox.

Very pompous. It's like saying your son is the alpha male or that your daughter is the alpha female. The name sounds feminine to me because of the 'a' at the end. This simply sounds weird as a name.

"Alpha" is also the code word for the letter "A" in the NATO phonetic alphabet.

It makes me think of the Alpha wolf of the wolf pack's societal structure. I wouldn't use this name for my kid. I doubt I'd even use it for a character in a story, in fact.

So that's where the word alphabet comes from! I never knew.

Please don't name your child after a letter!

In "Every Soul a Star" by Wendy Mass, one of the three main characters is Alpha Summers. She's named after the astronomical Alpha. She usually goes by Ally, and sometimes the joking nickname "Alpha Girl" which she says is like a superhero name.

In Power Rangers, there was the robot character Alpha 5, famous for saying "Aye-yi-yi-yi-yi". Later succeeded by Alpha 6 and Alpha 7.

To a Greek speaker this looks like you named your kid A. Never go to Greece with this name.

I think this is a wicked cool unique name. I would definitely use it for a girl, and I think it's a strong name for a leader. It isn't my first choice to name my future kids, but I'm definitely going to keep it in mind! I really like this name.

The name Alpha was given to 42 boys born in the US in 2015.
