  1. Not many NZers can easily say my long Greek surname so I shorten my first name to Alex. I’m half Greek, born in NZ & its easier to use

  2. Omg kid can’t believe that my name means so much. I go by Lexi or just Alexia.
    Its also weird to read the comments and see the name. This is cool

  3. I wish I went by Sia! 🙂 I go by Alex. But Sia is reeeally pretty. 🙂 I never knew Alexia is Greek.
