  1. Neal is a family name, it’s Irish, and it means Passion which goes along with his Libra astrological sign.
    Alexander means protector of man which also supports his Libra astrological sign.
    We love how strong his name is!

  2. It’s my husbands middle name and his grandfather’s name. It was also a name that was suggested for Libra boys ?
