Alexander

man's defender, warrior
ORIGIN: Greek
POPULARITY: 17
The defender of mankind has been in popular demand—and in the top 12—since 2005, according to Social Security Administration data. Alexander the Great comes to mind first, but if a world conqueror isn’t enough to persuade you, you might be inspired by American statesman Alexander Hamilton, the subject of a Tony Award–winning Lin-Manuel Miranda musical. You can find Alexanders in the Bible and saints named Alexander as well. Namesakes include actors Alexander Skarsgård and Alexander Dreymon.
