This name is too common!!

StasMarie Says:


Alexia is the feminine form of the name Alexius, which derives from the name Alexander (defender of men). There is a condition called "Alexia," and it comes from the Greek "a," which means "without" and "lexis," which means word. It is not a terrible idea to name a child Alexia, as there are many with this name. It is a fine name.
