I particularly like the spelling "Aleksander." It is Russian and a very beautiful name. Another derivative is "Alexei."

Alexander My Son
written by Deborah Alvarado, July 24, 2008
We named our son "Alexander Antony" We named all of our children first, and middle names with "A". He is our first child so he started the trend. He is named after his father Alexander. And I liked the name Anthony but my husband is from Cuba and spells the way he hears things so he wanted it to be spelled "Antony". I liked it, its different. My son likes his name. it suits him.

I thought it was interesting that a friend chose to use Xander as the nickname instead of plain-ol' Alex.
