This is my favorite masculine name. I think it conveys masculine beauty. A very strong name, and unusual enough to draw comments. It also lends itself to the rather unique nickname "Xan."

Xander sounds ok for a fantasy character but I think it's too cliche. No offense, but it doesn't sound that classic to me. Sander sounds better to me but Xander sounds almost fictious and doesn't go well. Xander was also the name of the nemesis in the comics and film "The Phantom." But it wasn't because of the comic book or film that I don't like this name. I have never really liked it, would never name a "real" character this or even someone that'd be my son. Just my opinion!

I think Xander is a very nice name. I can't remember anyone being named this. It sounds very classy, strong yet simple.

Xander is a cool name, it makes a good nickname for Alexander or used as an independant name.

Has anyone else noticed a correlation between the run of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and the popularity of this name?

I personally LOVE it. It sounds strong and masculine to me. I like that it's a nickname for Alexander too.

Xander, I suppose, is a rather cool nickname for Alexander (although I'd only use it as a nickname and not on its own). I'd prefer to spell it Zander, however, as it appears more correct to me.

This name is too trendy and nauseating. It also makes me think of Xandir, the gay guy from the cartoon Drawn Together.

If I have a son I'm planning on naming him Xander. I think it's a great name; very strong and masculine. I like it as a nickname for Alexander or by itself - unsure of which I will do. :)

Only as a pet name for Alexander.

I used Xander for my son's middle name & I absolutely love it! I think it adds a little spice to his name as a whole as his first name (Abram) is perceived as biblical. About a month after he was born I realized that Abram Xander sounds a lot like the name Alexander which I was not crazy about because my son has a cousin from his father's side of the family already named Alexander, but I still adore his name. I think Xander makes for a great first name too. Actually some of the family is choosing to call my son Xander rather than Abram. And I don't feel the name sounds fictional as some have stated. It is actually quite common (ranked 280 in 2007).

There was also Xander Crews, also known as Awesome X and Barnaby Jones, the impulsive, stupid, jerk-of-a-superhero from the show Frisky Dingo.
-- DestructoGirl  9/19/2009
I think this is a very strong name. I like that it is phonetic and easy for people to pronounce. And it is still fairly uncommon.

We plan to name our first son Alexander, after my grandfather, but we want to call him Xander for short. :)

This is one of my son's middle name. I thought it was very unique but he still won't have a hard time spelling it. Everyone that I tell it to though kinda gives me a weird look and asks if I'm a fan of Buffy! I've never even seen the show! lol!

I really like this name. But I pronounce the X. Otherwise, I think it's silly to have an X but say it like it's a Z. Besides. I think the X sound gives it a better masculine tone.

X-ander.

Another pronunciation is "Ig-zan-durr."

(I honestly like that pronunciation better. :D)

It's a cool name for a boy. "Xan" is a great nickname plus it starts with the letter X! A good alternative for the popular name Xavier. ;D.
