I think it's a lovely name - Alex is a great shortening too.

However, is it boring now?

No it's lovely smile

FlappyRose Sun 09-Oct-16 17:49:46

Not at all. I think it's a lovely name.

Chinlo Sun 09-Oct-16 17:51:44

It's not boring, it's just classic. It's one of my favourite of the popular, traditional names.

It's the best boys name ever. grin

No it's really nice. I wanted it for DS but a friend has an Alexander already and he is by a country mile the sweetest, loveliest most thoughtful little boy I have ever had the pleasure to meet. He's an absolute joy to be around. He is six and I wish he was mine! this may have coloured my view

No it's not boring it's lovely and you can shorten it to Alex, Sandy or Xander if he wants when he's older.

I have an Alexander and it's a fab name. Classic but not common

Queasyrider Sun 09-Oct-16 18:00:51

No. I love it just as much as I did when I named DS1 Alexander 11 years ago. He's Alex to everyone.

DramaAlpaca Sun 09-Oct-16 18:40:07

No, it's a good name.

Ohdofuckoffplease Sun 09-Oct-16 18:43:44

No it's lovely! Not boring at all. I really like Alex as a shortening too. Not massively keen on Sandy or Xander but they aren't terrible either.

It's a great name <biased>. And although it's fairly popular, we don't come across that many others here.

areyoubeingserviced Sun 09-Oct-16 18:47:35

One of my favourite names for a boy

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sun 09-Oct-16 18:47:47

Not boring!

TheRadiantAerynSun Sun 09-Oct-16 18:48:28

Well, I may be biased because I have one and in my family it's part of a strong naming tradition (we have lots of Alexs)

I think it's the perfect name. Flexible, classic, lots of NN options, popular without being trendy.

Not at all boring.

MotherDuckSaid Sun 09-Oct-16 19:01:25

i really like it smile

WaitrosePigeon Sun 09-Oct-16 19:13:02

There's nothing wrong with it, but I find it boring.

sugarplumfairy28 Sun 09-Oct-16 19:26:29

It's not offensive in any way whatsoever, but I personally find it it a little too common and pedestrian now days.

WeArePregnant11 Sun 09-Oct-16 19:29:55

It's perfect smile

I prefer the nn Alec, but Alex is also lovely.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sun 09-Oct-16 19:34:22

Absolutely not boring.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sun 09-Oct-16 19:35:39

I love Alec too.

Shockers Sun 09-Oct-16 19:37:47

The two I know, Alex and Alekss, are both gorgeous, sparky little boys!

Notmoreantihistamines Sun 09-Oct-16 19:42:53

Lovely name, not boring, and I am not biased as I dont have an Alex. We nearly used as a middle name but as initials made an unfortunate acronym.
