What do you think? If we go with Lexie do we call her Alexis?

AllieW Wed 15-Dec-10 12:42:11

I'm not overly keen on either, but Lydia is much less popular than Lexie now, I think, so I'd go for that. I prefer Lexie to be a nn for something. My niece is Alexia. Alexis is quite nice.

I prefer Lexie (Alexa ?) Alexis is nice too - I did have Alexa (Lexie) down for my last one - which turned out to be a Ben wink

I don't like either of them but out of the two Lexie. Really dislike Lydia.

I prefer Lydia. Good classic name.

I have a lydia and love it, people generally respond very well to it.

only had a couple of hmm looks when she was first born.

Lexie is a NN for Alexis or Alexandra. It is not a full name. I like both long forms. Lydia is very nice, too.

Lydia. Unless Alexis or Alexandra as Lexie is always a nickname to me.

Housewife2010 Wed 15-Dec-10 15:11:48

Definitely Lydia. It can be abbreviated to Liddie. I know a lovely 3 year old Liddie.

I like Alexandra but not Lexie.

RockinRobinBird Wed 15-Dec-10 18:20:48

Don't like Lexie at all, it's a nickname. This baby will be Lydia if it's a girl, it was runner up for dd.

Love Lydia; hate Lexie. Also hate Alex, Alexis, Alexandra, sorry.

Love Alexis with Lexie as a nn, definitely don't just call her Lexie as her main name. Alexis is powerful, feminine and glamourous.

Lydia lovely. Really dislike Lexie.

BarbieLovesKen Wed 15-Dec-10 21:37:27

They're completely different types of names, I think. Lydia is classic (and nicer) and Lexie is a bit WAGish

sharbie Wed 15-Dec-10 22:35:23

OsbegaEthewulf Wed 15-Dec-10 22:39:09

Lydia is what I wanted DD to be called. She isn't. Lovely lovely lovely name.
Lexie no.

Love Lydia, don't like Lexie.

KittyTwoShoes Thu 16-Dec-10 11:43:50

Love Lydia - it was on my parents' shortlist for me

Not a fan of Lexie, though I agree with the others that Alexandra is nice.

LittleYellowTeapot Thu 16-Dec-10 12:49:30

I'm not keen on Lexie but I like Alexa and Alexandra.

I quite like Lydia....could be a grower.
