Alec Benjamin, a singer and songwriter born in 1994. He is most known for his song "Let me down slowly" in 2018.
Definitely not a fan of this name, plus Alec Baldwin is a huge jerk, which gives me more reason to hate it.
Not a fan. I've known several bad Alecs and there's Alec Baldwin, who I dislike.
Alec sounds very strong, athletic, attractive and fun.

Zander is the perfect middle name for Alec, "Alec Zander". Anyways I'm not too fond of this name (no offense), it just looks incomplete. Thanks for reading :)
I was given the name Alec and I have always hated it. Some people might love this name and feel like it’s the perfect name for them. But it never felt to me like a very feminine name and I’m just a feminine person. It feels too square and ungraceful. I like Alex a lot better.
The term Smart Alec may have come from the word intellectual, because the sound of the name appears in the middle of that word. I may be wrong but it's just a guess.

The name looks kind of strange with a c at the end, even though it's still pronounced that way.
I'm not named Alec, but I wish I was, and I bet there are some Alec's who wished they were named differently. To me, Alec sounds mischievous, funny, and open minded. Plus, I figure that if anyone called me a smart-aleck, that would be a compliment. I like the name most above all others, so far.
Alec Nathan Wildenstein was a French-born American billionaire businessman, art dealer, racehorse owner, and breeder. Born in Marseille, Wildenstein was raised in New York City where his family owned and operated an art gallery. In 1875, his great-grandfather founded a business dealing in art. His father, Daniel Wildenstein, was a distinguished scholar of impressionism whose career and dominant personality overshadowed his son's achievements. Daniel Wildenstein did not think a university education was necessary for his two sons to work in the family business. Daniel Wildenstein had a passion for racehorses, which his son shared.
This is my favorite nickname for Alexander, as Alex is too common and Xander sounds too juvenile to me. I also think it's one of those nicknames that could work well as a first name on its own; it feels strong enough to carry itself.
My personal name is Alec, but everyone wishes to call me by the name of Alex. Alec is not a shortening of Alex, as they have the same number of letters, therefore, they are not synonymous.
I rarely think names are tacky, but this one seems that way. And it doesn't even make sense; If it's from Alexander, where does the C come from?
This is my brother's full name, not a shortened form of Alexander. I like the sound of it, personally, and it looks cooler than Alex. The thing is, though, I haven't ever met another Alec (besides my brother) that wasn't a jerk. Sometimes I wish his name was a short form of Alexander, because, even though I dislike the nickname Alex, I like Alexander better than Alec.
Reminds me of "Alec Eiffel" by the Pixies.

I much prefer this as a nickname for Alexander than Alex, which is getting way too common. But I really like it on it's own, too. I used to know a guy named Alec, and I thought it was short for Alexander at first, but it was just Alec. Cool name.
I don't like this name. It's too short, and the Alec Baldwin association has ruined this name for me.
I like this name, it's cool.
To me, this is a good and strong name and I like it.
I really like this name. It's cute and not as common as Alex or Alexander.

I like this name better than Alex when it's short for Alexander, but when it's a name in itself, uck. It's all around gross sounding alone. Get a better name.
Alec sounds kind of phlegmy.
