  1. Alex was my 4 year old son’s idea, from the girl in minecraft, and we changed it to Alexis after Alexis Bledel for a series/movie, and a band reference would be Asking Alexandria. Sons name also has movie/game/book references. Second name Luna for the book reference (Harry Potter)

  2. We choose the name Alexis because it seemed to fit her and make it all sound beautiful…

  3. I wanted her to be Lucy so bad, but no one liked it all. So Lexi kinda sounds like Lucy. Everyone loved the name Alexis.
