I know it’s also a medical term. But I love the name, and the meaning is “Defender of Men.”
However, I’ve been getting a lot of backlash for considering it. I think I’ll still go with it, since I’ve spoken to some [name]Alexia[/name]'s and they adore or like their name. And the worst teasing was “Dyslexic [name]Alexia[/name]” and it was a girl who WAS dyslexic.
[name]Alexia[/name] (the medical term) is an acquired reading disability.
I don’t think it’s THAT bad. It’s not like it means “deformed head” like [name]Kennedy[/name]. Or “blind” like [name]Cecelia[/name].
And it’s a very pretty name, that I’ve loved for years now.
