Personal experiences with the name Alix: | Edit

In school teachers alwasy thought I was a boy and they just misspelled my name. I absolutely hated my name until I was around 12. Now, I love having a unique name. But if I had a quarter for every time I heard what's it short for? I'd be a millionaire. I say "nothing" they reply "Alexandra, Alexis??" I say "no, its just Alix" they say "not at all? are you sure?"

Alix is my middle name and English speakers always think it is pronounced like "Alex" but it is pronounced with a long E, "A-leex". I've always liked my middle name and I like the fact that it is easy to pronounce in all languages.
