So much better than Alexander.
Alexander is a lot better.
Aleksander Vladimirovich Emelianenko is a Russian mixed martial artist. He is a three-time Russian national Combat Sambo champion and three-time world Combat Sambo champion in the absolute division. He is the younger brother of Fedor Emelianenko.

I think it is a Russian and Ukrainian variant transcription of "Aleksandr".
The name Aleksander is in Albanian geg dialect, dialect of Dardania (today Kosovo). A-le-x(ks)i-ander means born like dream.
The name Aleksander was given to 150 baby boys born in the US in 2012.
I pronounce it as "Alehk-sann-durr." I think it's a really cool and unique-looking name. Although I'm not big on nicknames, "Aleks" just looks really awesome when written out. :)
Prince Aleksander of Hohenberg, or more commonly known as Alek, is the lead male character in Scott Westerfeld's Leviathan trilogy. He is the fictional 15-year-old son of Franz Ferdinand who gets caught up in World War I after his father is assassinated.
This is the real name of the guitarist for Rush, Alex Lifeson. His real name is Aleksandar Živojinović. BUt to shorten it up, he changed Aleksander to Alex, and Zivojinovic to Lifeson because his real last name means "Son of Life"-Lifeson-
This name is also VERY common in Norway, so I guess it its also a Scandinavian name. [noted -ed]
The traditional pet form for Aleksander is Olek - perhaps influencerd by the Ukrainian variant (Oleksandr). Nonetheless, a more modern pet form is Aleks, which is most likely influenced by the English short form Alex.
