Alexei and Alexa? Bit similar aren’t they?

I think the ‘Alex’ thing is a bit overdone. What nicknames could they get? Al? Alex? Lex? Like really, there’s honouring a family member with a name then theres just going overboard. Next one Alexandra? Alexander? Alexis? LOL

I think naming not one but TWO kids after yourself is really narcissistic. It’s like the dad of a friend of mine, Jim, who named two of his sons James and Jameson. The little boy is adorable though.

I don’t see a problem with the names. It’s his kids, he should name them as he and his wife sees fit. If you love your own name that much I see no reason why you shouldn’t pass it on to your kids!

Thanks CB for posting Ramirez family! Gotta love him on that field!
