The sad thing about America is that because most Russian male names or nicknames sound "feminine" people completely disrespect Russian culture. If a Russian every heard a girl named Vanya they'd probably ask why the parents would do that to the poor girl. From what I know of Russian, they're pretty strict about the names. There are very few unisex names, e.g. Sasha has only recently been accepted for girls

This is a boy name. I'm all for gender-neutral names, but this one doesn't even come up for boys...

This is a Russian male name, a variant transcription of Алексей (usually rendered Alexei). I don't recommend it for a girl any more than I'd recommend Vladimir or Aleksandr for a girl. Also, in Russian it's pronounced ah-lyek-syay. If you want Alex-ee, and a name that isn't masculine, try Alexie.

Why not pick a different Alex name for a girl? I agree, it may sound girl but I'm fairly sure Aleksey (normally with an X) is more of a boy name. It isn't used much here for boys, though.
