I wouldnt say Alexa is overly common but its certainly not unusual.


Alexa Paige is a good combo.


ETA: have  I read your signature right? - you have a child called Xaxa? - I havent heard that name before but I dont think  I would do Alexa for a sibling - Xaxa and Alexa quite similar in sound and bit tongue twisty together.

I prefer Alexia but Alexa is still lovely. I don't think it's very common.

I much prefer Alexandra. I think it's gorgeous.  
Alexa does nothing for me. Alexia is slightly better.

I don't like it, I don't like Alexis either.

There are so many 'Alex' names around that even though it's not that common, it won't appear all that uncommon.
