In this entry, you state that Aleksey is also used in Belarus and Ukraine, but then you go on to list the Cyrillic spellings Аляксей (Belarusian) and Олексій (Ukrainian), neither of which transcribe to Aleksey as per the official transcription rules for Belarusian and Ukrainian.

If available, you should list the spellings that would transcribe to Aleksey. If these do not exist or are otherwise not available, then you should remove the usages of Belarusian and Ukrainian from this entry - along with the spellings that are currently listed. Otherwise, laymen might think that those spellings actually transcribe to Aleksey. [noted -ed]
That's a great name actually. I have a friend and his name is Aleksey and I think this is the coolest name ever!
Given to 19 boys in America in 2014, some girls are given this name too in America but rarely.
Never want this name back in my life again, it's not good in my opinion.
Aleksey Lovchev is a Russian weightlifter.
This name is cute... on someone who isn't English.
Unfortunately, short of living in Russian, this will be a hard name to swallow. Why? Not necessarily itself being the problem... simply that (especially in the United States) "Aleksey" will be viewed as a "kre8tiv" variant-- an uneducated decision. Regardless of that fact, if you possess a true Russian surname I believe that this could be pleasant. "Aleksey Anderson"? I an afraid not. "Aleksey Dobrokhatova"? Very desirable.
May I add: This should be strictly a male title. I apologize, women... but that opinion should be obvious of reason.

I live in Russia and I can say that this name is widespread here. But now it's becoming less popular as 20-30 years ago.
I like this name. It's different and very rarly used in the USA for boys. I only know two guys with this name. Hope to name my 1st born son Aleksey Robert (after the last Tsarevich and after my grandpa).
Correction: pronounced [ah-lyek-SYEY].
Aleksey Romanov was the youngest child and only son of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia and Alexandra of Hesse. He inherited haemophilia from his mother Alexandra, a condition which could be traced back to her maternal grandmother Queen Victoria. Aleksey was a month shy of his fourteenth birthday when he was executed on July 17, 1918 by Bolsheviks along with the rest of his family. In 2000, he and his family were canonized by the Russian Orthodox Church.
This name is ADORABLE. It was the name of the Russian czar Peter the Great's son and heir (sometimes translated as 'Alexei'), who he later executed on account of his weakness and disinterest in his inherited country.
