Alexander is a primarily male name of Greek origins, meaning "man's defender" and "warrior". The name derives from the Greek name Aléxandros and is associated with the 4th-century BCE king of Macedonia, Alexander the Great. The name is a compound of the verb ἀλέξειν (aléxein; 'to ward off, avert, defend') and the noun ἀνήρ (anḗr, genitive: ἀνδρός, andrós; meaning 'man'). It is an example of the widespread motif of Greek names expressing "battle-prowess", in this case, the ability to withstand or push back an enemy battle line. The name Alexander has been linked to some of the world's most formidable influencers, such as Alexander Cartwright, Alexander Graham Bell, Alexander McQueen, Alexander Pope, and Alexander Skarsgard. The name is popular in various cultures and has been used by kings of Scotland, Russia, and Poland, as well as eight popes. The name's popularity can be attributed to its association with Alexander the Great and its ability to cross cultures.
