Today (will probably be different tomorrow actually can almost guarantee it) I am liking the name Oleksei. Its close to Alexei I know but I promise I haven't just added an O in the front it is a Ukrainian name.

It eliminates the A problem, and I also love the nn Ollie or Leks/Lex. But is it to different? The nn is probably what is winning me over especially since I love the full name too!

Is it that awful? How would you spell it there is very many different variants of the name.
- Oleksiy (this is the traditional spelling the iy looks funny but I don't hate it)
- Oleksei
- Oleksey
- Oleksie
- Olexei
- Olexiy
- Olexey
- Another way??

I think if I went this name he would be Oleksiy (some spelling?) Lachlan C..

Sorry, I'm not particularly a fan of Oleksei or any of the variations mentioned, mainly because its too close to Alexei in sound.

I'm not a big fan either, sorry. I also think it would be a difficult name to spell and he will be forever correcting and spelling out his name. Some people might be fine with doing that, but it gets annoying for me.

Definitely not a fan sorry, agree with AnA that he would be constantly having to spell his name throughout his life. I quite like Alexei though.. Are you still considering that as an option?

Sorry, not a fan, and I don't think it really 'fits' with your other kids' names.

If you have Ukrainian heritage, I think it would be cool, but in general, I don't really like the name.

I also agree with AnA that he will be constantly having to spell his name and explain to people how to pronounce it. DH and I both have/had to do that all the time and it is really annoying for us.

Nope, not a fan. But I don't like Alexei either.

If you like the nickname Olly the only other name I can think of is Oliver (well and Oleander, but I don't know that I like that it's a poisonous shrub). What about the nickname Ori/Orrie? Orin or Orson grab you?

I agree, it doesn't really match well with your other children's names. What about just going with Lex? Or Lexton? Is Oliver a no no?

This.

I think Oliver is a lovely name, gives you the Ollie nickname if you like that, and I think it goes well with all your other names smile.gif
