they were not saying they were going tocall their kid Tsarvitch. Tsarvitch Alexei Romanov was a grand duke of Russia who they admire and wanted to use the name Alexei in honour of. NOT Tsarvitch.

I absolutely adore the name Alexei. It's at the top of my list and really like the nicknames Lex and Lexi. I don't think it sounds any more feminine at all especially if it's on a boy.

It's better and more accurate when spelled Aleksey.

I heard a mom calling her son Alexei in a store and I've fallen in love with it.

I like it, although possible nicknames like Lexi are very feminine-sounding.

This is a good alternative to the unfortunately girl-ified Alexis.
