On this page, under Related Names, OTHER LANGUAGES/CULTURES, it says "Alexander, Alexandros (Greek Mythology)". That is not correct. Alexander, or Alexandros in Greek, is the name of several ancient Greek historical characters, but not a single mythological character. Therefore "Greek Mythology" is incorrect. It should just say "Classical Greek".

I've always had such a strong aversion to the female name/nickname Lex (and Lexie)... but I realize now that I actually find it interesting in male usage.

I find this a good name for both boys and girls, but not as a 'proper' name, as a nickname then yes I love it. Before I never actually thought of it as a nickname for a male, as always I thought it to be short for Alexa and Alexis.

In the book 'Jurassic Park' there is a girl called Lex. She also features in the first and second film versions. Probably for this reason, I think of Lex as more of a girls' name.

My friend is Lex, though his real name is Leslie. Probably influenced by him, I prefer it for a boy.

Lex can also be a girls' name/nickname. My name is Alexandra and it's often shortened to just Lex or Lexa.

Lex is the name used by Superman villian Lex Luthor. According to Smallville TV series, Lex is short for Alexander, and this is most probably a link to Alexander the Great.
