Meaning:Defender of men
Don’t worry, you can give baby the name Lex without dooming them to a life as a supervillain. While the name might be best associated with Lex Luther, Superman’s nemesis, it is also an ancient name with a powerful meaning. Lex is Greek in origin and is originally a diminutive of Alexander or Alexandra, which means “defender of men.” These days, Lex is a given name in its own right. It is a short and quippy name that not many on the playground will also have.
