From Alex to Xander

I think I’ll officially change my name to Xander…

Three years ago, when I picked ‘Alexander’ as my identity (based off my New World character), I was happy to see that “Alex” wasn’t one of the more “common names” like David, Jon, John, James etc. There were a couple other Alex’s, who I thought were idiots that disgracefully carried the name, but I still liked it enough.

But now, there are too many Alex’s. Even though I have a personal connection (I guess you could almost call it ownership) to the name “Alex” and I love its base name (Alexander–derived from the Greek word Alexien and -der–meaning of man, combined to mean leader/defender of man), I think a change would be nice. Besides, Xander still has the same base name (Alexander is the best name in the world! ). Anyway, a bunch of Google searches confirmed my desires for uniqueness (yep I wanna be special~ ) :
