Featured Name ~ Alexey

We named one of our twin sons Alexey. The other one is named Oscar Murray after his Dad and his Great-Grandfather, so I wanted the other boy's name to reflect my Russian heritage.

Alexey was the little prince, son of Tsar Nicholas II, the last Romanov who would be tsar. He was named a martyr by the Orthodox church recently, along with the entire Romanov family. It's an old Russian name, and with a last name of Leeper, we thought the short version of the name - Lex - would sound strong, masculine and have a ring to it.
