  1. He’s very emotional

  2. I wanted him to be named after my mother she passed in March. Her name was Xanthia so I wanted his name to have a part of her name so I said Xander and it just stuck to me.

  3. My husband always liked the name Xander and said if he had a boy that’s what he wanted. He was so set on it that I didn’t try to change his mind. I don’t love it but I don’t hate the name. It’s also become more popular lately.

  4. I think it’s a strong name and unique but not unheard of. I love the name Alexander but it’s a bit long so I absolutely loved this shortened version.
