Etymology & Historical Origin - Alexzander

Alexzander is a modern American respelling of Alexander apparently intended to sound out the second and third syllables more distinctly. Alexander is the Latinized form of the ancient Greek name “Alexandros”, composed of the elements “alexein” meaning “to defend” and “andros” meaning “man, warrior” in the possessive sense which brings us to the full meaning of the name: “defender of mankind”. The most famous bearer was Alexander the Great, King of Macedon in the 4th century B.C.; he was (and still is) considered the greatest military general of all time. Alexander the Great successfully defeated the Persian Empire in its entirety, expanding his empire east to India and south to Egypt, spreading and infusing Hellenistic culture far and wide. In his 33 short years on earth, Alexander the Great never lost one battle. His “great” name was adopted throughout Europe in many different languages dating back to the classical era. Indeed, Alexander and his linguistic brethren are among the most enduring and time-tested of all ancient names in Western Civilization. The spelling of Alexzander, however, appears to be most distinct to the United States where parents seem to be so fond of arbitrary spelling modifications.

Popularity of the Name Alexzander

Alexzander is a 21st century American invention by which a “z” is added to the classical ancient Greek Alexander. This somewhat odd spelling first appeared on the U.S. Top 1000 list in 2000 (the same year Alexander landed a spot on the Top 20). Make no mistake, Alexzander is definitely not a popular spelling, but it has been used with enough frequency to maintain Top 1000 positioning for well over a decade. Today, Alexander is a Top 10 favorite nationwide, while Alexzander languishes at or near the bottom on the charts. It’s a little kitschy, but some might argue that extra “z” adds an element of uniqueness to an otherwise overused name.
