In my recent thread, many people said that Alexi was a boys name, and they only knew boys/men named Alexi.
I'm kind of heartbroken because its a name DH & I both liked!
So I'm wondering if anyone out there knows of any females with the name Alexi? Is it just rare for a girls name, or is it completely unheard of?

I don't know any Alexi's male or female but I think it could be used for either
What about Alexis?

Know a little girl with the middle name Alexis. And a female family member's name is Lex (Lexie). So, for me, Alexi as a girl's name isn't a stretch.
I do have a penchant for boy's name for girls tho .
Alexi/Lexie/Alexis are cute for a girl.

DD was almost Alexi. I thought it was a girls name. She does have an Alexis in her class. I prefer Alexi, and love Lexi for a NN.

To me Alexi is a name like Sascha where its a boys name in more eastern countries but girls as well in western countries
Don't know any personally but Alexi Bedel was Rory in The Gilmore Girls.
I also thought of Alexei Sayle but the spelling is slightly different. Although if I was going to name a child from The Young Ones it would be Vyvyan all the way.

Never seen it as a female name but there's no law, op, if you love it then use it.

My 4yr old daughters name is Alexi.
The name means "helper and defender of mankind'
I love her name, we call her Lexi and Lex as a nick name.
I definetly see it as being a girls name.
The other name we were considering was Alexia. Alexis was too common for us.

I've only heard of it as a boys name but I feel it could be used as either a boys or girls name. It would be lovely for a girl

Why not call her Alexandra (which is a beautiful name) and she can chose to shorten it to Alexi.

I havent seen any girl Alexi's - however, have seen Alexis, Alexia and Alexa - and of course Alexandra - have also known several women who go by Alex - short for Alexandra or Alexia.
Does not sound odd as a girls name to me.
And I see the short version Alex as unisex the way Chris or Pat are unisex - usually short for different names for each gender - ie Christopher/Christine, Patrick/Patricia - but in effect the same in everyday life.

DS has an Alexia in his class, she is a lovely little girl.

I know two, one in her teens the other 6 years both live in NYC.

I only know a male Alexi. For that reason I see it as a boys name. It was on my boys name list. Amahlia was almost Alexa.

There is a little female Alexi enrolled in my Prep class for next year
Posted 07 December 2012 - 05:30 PM
I don't know any Alexi's at all. But know one gorgeous little girl called Alexia.
Posted 07 December 2012 - 05:43 PM
Definitely a boys name. Aren't there enough female variations of Alexander available for a girl?
Posted 07 December 2012 - 05:52 PM
I know an Alexi (an adult). She suits her name and it seems very feminine on her. Her nn is Lexi or Lex.

The only Alexi I know is male and of Eastern European decent. I have known several female Alexis's and Alexia's. I think a few of the variations must be unisex - I always thought Alexis was a female name but then I heard of Alexis Denisof who is a male actor and acted alongside his wife in Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
