    Default Does this name match with my other kids names? WDYT of it?

    My first three childrens names are Zackarie James, Ashton Xavier and Amahlia May. I am having another boy and can't find ANYTHING I love. I want a name with a nn and want to try and avoid another A name which I am finding hard bc I just love A names.

    Anyway I just came across the Greek name Olexei / Oleksei / Olekseiy (actually there is heaps of ways to spell it you get the idea have no idea how I will spell it if I keep it on my list).

    Yes its very similar to the Russian name Alexei which I adore but its another A name, I tend to want to call him Lexei (which the only Alexei I know goes by) but it is so girly which I don't want. I would probably call him nn Olli which I also love.

    He would probably be Olexei Lachlan C..... So what do you think of it? Do you think it goes with my other childrens names?
    Thanks girls

    I like it and think it goes well with the other names. I love A names too, I have an Ariel and Archer. I also have an Oliver who gets Olly for short..

    Sorry OP, I don't like it at all. I think your other 3 children have lovely names and Olexei sounds so harsh to me. I know you are desperate to find the perfect name, so if you love it and its perfect to you though, then go for it.

    FWIW I still love Knox or Lennox and I think they go well with your other kids names.

    I think if you did call him that he'd probably get Olek as a nick name. I love Russian names.


    I think its a great name.

    I think it's a nice name.. Olexai.. I don't think it sounds harsh or anything like that. I think it's a rather smooth name..

    Would you consider another name starting with Z or X?

    Xavian is on my list. Its the only name I can find that I like. I don't mind Xander but is becoming a bit popular with all the Alexanders around which I also love. I can't find any Z names I like.
