    Additional info:

    Alix is mainly used in France, both for males and females, although nowadays it is mainly a girl's name.

    Some linguists have tried to link Alix to Alice. Others see it as a diminutive form of Alexander, Alexandra or Alixandra.
    The name Alix was found on a Christian funeral inscription of the 6th century, at a time when Christians of Germanic origin were rarer than Christians of Greek and Latin origins. This second suggestion thus seems more likely.

    "The Adventures of Alix" is a popular French comic book series. The stories revolve around a Gaulish boy called Alix who lives in Roman times.
