I prefer [name_f]Alexa[/name_f] over [name_u]Alexis[/name_u], and to tell you the truth I’m not sure why. For some odd and unknown reason the -xis at the end of [name_u]Alexis[/name_u] bugs me. Weird I know.

I know you didn’t list these [name_u]Alex[/name_u]+ names but my ultimate favorite is [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f] followed by [name_f]Alexia[/name_f].

I might have answered differently a year ago, but right now I think the Amazon connection would get really annoying. I could sit “witty” people barking random orders at an [name_f]Alexa[/name_f] and it could get old fast.

I prefer [name_u]Alexis[/name_u]. I just like the -is ending more than the usual -a. It has a sort of tomboyish feel to it, that I like.

I prefer [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f] ([name_u]Alex[/name_u]) or [name_f]Alexia[/name_f]. I voted [name_f]Alexa[/name_f] because I prefer that sound, but the Amazon product connection is quite strong at the moment.

I prefer [name_u]Alexis[/name_u]! Once a upon a time, I knew I lovely little girl by the name. She was sweet, and everything you could only hope your child would be! addittionally, the -xis, i find, is easier to say then -a. Also what about the nickname [name_u]Lex[/name_u] or [name_u]Lexi[/name_u]?

I prefer [name_u]Alexis[/name_u] - I’ve always find it quite cool and stylish, whereas [name_f]Alexa[/name_f] just feels a bit bland and boring to me, and (I’m not sure why) a little ‘dated’.

I know 2 people named [name_u]Alexis[/name_u], both female. One is in her 20s, one is in grade school. One uses nn [name_u]Alex[/name_u], the other nn [name_u]Lexi[/name_u]. I may have used it for a kiddo if I wasn’t already close with 2 of them.

I’m going to say [name_u]Alexis[/name_u], but I’m biased (it’s my name). I love my name, there are so many nn possibilities! [name_u]Ali[/name_u], [name_u]Alex[/name_u], [name_u]Lexi[/name_u], I go by all them to different people. [name_f]Alexa[/name_f] has a strong product association right now.
