Looking to flex an "X" with your baby name choices? Lexi is a playful, youthful-sounding given name for girls. A diminutive of Alexandra and Alexis, it means "man's defender" and comes from the Latin Alexander and the Greek name Alexandros. Lexi can be a cute nickname for its originals but stands out all on its own as a catchy name for a girl. Fans of the hit show Schitt's Creek may choose Lexi in honor of the lovable Alexis, played by Canadian actress Annie Murphy.
