I much prefer Alexia because it's less common to me. What is Amazon Alexa? I've never heard of that.
Too associated with Amazon Alexa.
Beautiful, regardless of the Amazon association.
I love it. I don't care about Amazon Alexa (the google thing is much better anyway and will succeed in the long term). It is a lovely name and totally usable.
My name is Alexa, it's short for Alexandra. I have always liked my name, but there is the matter of the Amazon Alexa. For years when I introduce myself I have been constantly asked "What's the weather today?" and other similar things. I wouldn't recommend naming your kid this, it will just result in constant comments.
Personally, I think it's dumb that they used this name for the Amazon AI. However, I also think that it would be cool to have the same name as an Amazon AI.

Alexa is a beautiful name, absolutely wonderful and stunning. Fun to say, looks beautiful on paper, just wow. I can see why Amazon chose the name Alexa for their AI, it's beautiful. I don't know why people would turn away from a name because of a stupid computer? Like, it's still a beautiful name!
I would LOVE it if not for the robot that ruined it. Then each time you say: "Alexa, dear,", the robot activates, which would be SOOOO annoying. But you could solve the problem by using the nickname Lexi or Ali.
You can actually easily change the name it reacts to so that shouldn't be a problem at all.
I agree with the newest comment.
Sounds like a disease.
Alexa is a character in the Barbie movie The Diamond Castle.
My name is Alexa and I think it is beautiful and has a beautiful meaning. I also know I've had to use a nickname for awhile because of the AI- not cool when people are always asking you for the weather and time.
My name happens to be Alexa and I get bullied because of the robot and I hate it. Does anyone else experience this?
Kind of harsh-sounding.
This is an absolutely gorgeous name and it's a shame that a corporation ruined it for everyone. It's honestly pretty unethical. I've heard of Alexas being teased a lot, and even having to have their names whispered so it doesn't accidentally activate the AI in homes or businesses.

Alexa “Lexi” Brooke Rivera (1998-) is an American social media star. She is a content creator along with her well known brother, Brent Rivera.
I love this name! My cousin is named Alexa and she is awesome. She and her brother, Lance, are my only teenage cousins who play with me when they are not busy. I love them so much.

Also, avoid the Alexa thing from Amazon jokes. Don’t be mean to anybody with a name like this, or Siri or Cortana.
My mother is - to the best of my knowledge - the first known modern woman with the name “Alexa”. Born 5 April 1914 to John Alexander Logan Bachar (1885-1975) and Gertrude Lillian McCulloch (1887-1980) outside the Sierra Nevada foothill community of Applegate, California. My grandparents fully expected a boy and had no girl name in mind. They finally decided to take the first five letters of the father’s name (he never went by “John”)... and thus “Alexa” came about. She grew up in Nevada and California, went to a nursing college in San Francisco where she met my father, never once encountering any other girl by that name. Then during World War II my parents hosted at our home literally thousands of young sailors passing through the local USO - many of them just homesick teenagers away from home for the first time. Those dinners at my home being served by my mother, by now with four young sons, left a visible impression on many of these young men, for in the years following the end of the war my parents corresponded with many. They were at first surprised, then pleased when they would receive occasional birth announcements from more than a few of these same ex-sailors saying that they had named their daughter “Alexa” after my mother. Later I myself presented my mother with my first child, named appropriately: “Kimberley Alexa” - and she later would drop her given name, becoming just “Alexa” professionally as a singer. In my second marriage, our first child was named “Alexa Marie“ after my recently-deceased mother (17 October 1969) - thus giving me two daughters with the name Alexa long before that blasted computer company came along. Ironically, my next two brothers and I all were actually born at Children's Hospital on Lake Avenue in San Francisco - within blocks of the Amazon-Alexa HQ in the old Presidio complex. The bastardization of the name has caused both my daughters deep distress, but nothing can detract from the honourable origin of the name. I am only relieved neither of our parents did not live to see my mother’s good name so sullied.
Alexa Nikholas was an actress known for starring as Nicole Bristow on “Zoey101” from 2005-2006.
I like the way this name looks and sounds. I find this name so much better than Alexis simply because I hate the name Alexis. This name is more feminine and softer than the verbose Alexis. If you want something with a little more flair than Alexa there is also the just as beautiful name Alexia.
Sounds like elixir.
In 2018, 4 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Alexa who is registered female with the Social Security Administration. It is the 560th most common female first name for living U.S. citizens.
Hey so I have been reading some comments on how this is “tacky” “trashy” etc, etc and I just wanted to point out a few things. (Before you go bash me I just wanted to say DO YOU KNOW A NAME DOESN'T IDENTIFY A PERSON?! Most of these comments make me ashamed to be apart of the human race. It's okay to say I think this name is bad, tacky or trashy, but for this name it’s not the case. I mean look at it... well it’s not THAT bad I’ve seen worse. We all know the new Amazon al or whatever it’s called, called “Alexa” listen: not everybody owns an Alexa or wants to buy one. This was a name before the Amazon thing even came out. (Well... if you want to name your child Alexa go ahead if you want to name your child DaQuan go ahead we’re not gonna stop you. Comments are for the freedom of speech not to say the parents are “Uneducated” or “trash”.
Alexa, play 'What's my name' by Rihanna.
Probably should avoid this name right now due to jokes about Alexa, the Amazon AI.
I was rooting for this name as I like it better than Alexis, but the device named Alexa (And people have to call out its name to get it to work which will be confusing to human Alexas within earshot and maybe even confusing to the device when the human Alexa is called for.) killed that name! Thanks Silicon Valley!
My name is Alexandra. In my school there is another girl called Alexandra and she uses the name Alex. Last year we had a guy in our grade with the name Alexander. He also used Alex. I also have a cousin with the name Alexander and he uses Alex too! Along with his dad. I never felt like Alex was my nickname. Now that I’m entering high school I want my own nickname and I think the name Alexa is right for me.

My youngest daughter's name is Alexa Star. She's almost 3. Her name is simply beautiful and fits her really well.
Alexa Bliss is a professional wrestler at Smackdown. Her real name is Alexis Kaufman.
This is my name and I adore it! I do not think that it sounds stripper-esque, trashy, or unintelligent. I believe that the name Alexa is very classy yet short and sweet - a name that I would definitely consider naming a future daughter if it was not my own already. I am still young - fifteen years old - so my opinion may change in the future... Yet as of now I think that my name is one of the prettiest, with such a strong meaning behind it.
Alexa Curtis is an Australian singer who won The Voice Kids Australia in 2014. She won through Team Delta and is now signed to Universal Music Australia. She represented Australia in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2016. She finished 5th with 202 points.
Also a Hungarian name. Pronounced: AW-lek-saw. [noted -ed]
If I used it I would spell it Aleksa. Alexa is a bit boring.
Alexa is a good name because it's nice on kids and adults. Might be a bit upsetting if it got confused with Alexis a lot but it has nice nicknames that go with it like Lexie, I personally don't like the nickname Lex. I just don't and Alex sounds too much like a boys name, so other than those two nicknames, Alexa is a nice name. Also like Eileen said above I do prefer Aleksa.
I like this name as a full name. I also like Alexandra and Alexia.
It's cute as a nickname for Alexandra, but as a full name it sounds very immature and little girl-ish. I encourage Alexa strictly as a nickname; or you could just go with something similar, like Alicia or Alyssa, for a full name.
I hate this name so much, especially when you call her Lexi because the name Alexa is already a stripper sounding name, so just adding Lexi makes it worse.
This name is simply beautiful. Every positive adjective can be used to describe it. If you are considering this name for your little girl, some combos I have that you more than welcome to take a look at are:

Alexa Claire
Alexa Paige
Alexa Caroline
Alexa Charlotte
Alexa Josephine
Alexa Morgan.
I personally love the name Alexa and I want to change my name to it when I'm older. I don't know much about it, but I would just like to say to anyone who dislikes the name that I think it is very beautiful and unique.
Apparently Alexa is more frequently used as a legal name than a nickname for Alexandra. Now I know why Alexandra's never get called Alexa.
Alexa Goddard, an English pop and R&B singer. She has a song called "Marilyn".
In my opinion, the most beautiful name for a girl.
I think it's a sweet name for little girls, it's my name, but I always shorten it to Alex because I'm a tomboy, and it's annoying reminding teachers. If you name a child Alexandra, they can shorten it to Alexa if they wish, but stick with Alex. My full names Alexa Mia, and people think it's sweet, but as I said, it doesn't suit me.
Means "protector of mankind".
Very pretty, but why not just name your daughter Alexandra? My friend is named Alexandra and we call her Alexa. :)

Alexa Veronica Gerasimovich (born 2002 in Long Island, New York) is an American child actress.
Alexa Vega is an American actress.
Alexa Davalos is an American actress.
I have a cousin named Alexa and we often shorten it to Lexa. She's very tall, skinny, and athletic. I think her name suits her really well.
If you were to name your daughter Alexa or Alexis and she doesn't like it, there are so many different nicknames she can use instead. This is something important to look at when deciding on a name. Personally I prefer Alexa at the moment.
I think Alexa is a great nickname for the name Alexandria/Alexandra. I only like the nickname Alex for the boys name Alexander. So I like Alexa for girls and Alex for boys.
Actually Alexa is a very classy, sweet name. Calling it a "trashy porn star" name is quite ignorant and frankly unintelligent.
Boring. Borderline trashy porn star name.
I love this, much better than Alexandra. I also like Alexia and Alexis too.
Alexis is much better sounding. I don't like the sound of Alexa at all!
I love this name! Cute nicknames would be Alex, Lexa, Lexie. I do not like the name Alexis at all, this is more cute and sounds like a friendly name!
I love this way for a nickname for Alexandra, better than "Alex". Alexa is for a girl and Alex is for a BOY!
I like the way the name sounds! I prefer this name to Alexis.
From the name [Alexander] meaning "Protector of Mankind".
Very pretty - sweet yet strong.
To me it brings to mind a tough, tarty, brainless blonde girl - popular, but stupid and senseless. If your name is Alexandra, choose Ally or Xandra or something else!
Bah, I don't like the sound of this name. It sounds lazily constructed, unimaginative, and utterly bland, and it's not even pretty. There are far too many names like this anyway.
My name is Alexa, and I personally love it. Nicknames I usually go by that are derived from it are Lex and Lexa. To me the name gives off a "nice person" tone.
My best friend's name is Alexa, and I think it's way classier than the name Alexis, which is still an awsome name.
Crazy name. Never heard of it. It's the name of the internet ranking service.
Love this name - short, simple and cute.
My name is Alexa and I honestly can't think of a name that I'd rather have! It gets shortened to Lex or Lexie which I think is nice too. I'm not keen when people call me Alexis by mistake though!
It is also the name of a ship in the song by Billy Joel "Down Eastern Alexa".
I think it is a cute name.
Famous Bearer: Colombian-American actress Alexa Vega.
I love the name Alexa, it's short and sweet. :)
I like this name so much because even if it's cleary a girls name it has some boys feeling in it.
I love the name Alexa because it's close to my name Alexis.
Nice name, but soooo much better spelled Aleksa.
A feminine form of the name 'Alexander' inspired by Alexander the Great. Has become very popular in recent years. It is usually said to mean "protector" or "protector of mankind".
