My given name is Alexa but I go by Lex. Alexa, to me, is a nice enough name, but it sounds sporty, which I am not. Lex is way better. It's cute, and short, and most people don't actually use it as a name, just a nickname for family and close friends. I'm almost always the only Lex. My only complaints are that people sometimes think my name is Lux, and that the major association is Lex Luthor, who is a dude, and I'm not a dude, plus everyone always tries to call me Lexi and I can't stand that. I think it's a great name and a great nickname, though.
