    Default Which spelling???

    I may be getting ahead of myself since I don't even know if I am having a girl, but I love the name Alexa. The only problem is my name is Alena. She will have the same middle name as me(tradition) so there will only be 1 letter the difference. I like the nickname Lexi but whether we use it will depend (my nickname was ment to be Ali and I get Lena etc). Does Leksi work?

    So I was thinking I could spell it Aleksa instead of Alexa but I am not sure. Aleksa isn't made up spelling it is the greek origin and I have found Alexa is Finnish, Sweedish origin.

    What do you think?

    Alexa. A lovely name (and a lovely spelling)

    If you go with 'Aleksa,' your little girl won't be capable of informing people for a number of years that she has the greek spelling: in the mean time people might just think that mummy can't spell and wanted to give her a speshul and yooneek name. And Leksi? That spelling looks like something you might see in an ikea catalogue! Ugh! Lexi is way cool
