Other Origin(s):Polish
Meaning:Defender of man
Fashioned from Alexander, Aleksy is a boy’s name of Greek origin. This variant, however, is found more commonly in the Polish-speaking part of the world. Its meaning remains unchanged, which is  “defender of man.” Although there are countless personalities in this name group, Aleksy by itself stands out thanks to Polish boxer and Olympic champion, Aleksy Antkiewicz and Polish resistance fighter, Aleksy Dawidowski. A book has also been based on the life of the latter. If you’d like your little one to channel that same spirit and breathe new life into its meaning, this one is a time-tested option.
