Alexander Genealogy & History

Alexander is probably the most popular name worldwide, with the given name the more common. Deriving from the ancient Greek compound "alex" (meaning "defender") and "andros" (meaning "(of) man"), it was bestowed on the Greek goddess Hera as a title. Alexander family history traces directly to Alexander the Great, whose military conquests resulted in the largest empire in the ancient world (356-323 BC). Alexander is likely the best example of the spread of battle-related Indo-European names, resulting in variations as disparate as Chinese Yalishanda, Arabic Iskandar, Hawaiian Alika, Hindi Alakshendra, Japanese Arekisanda, Manx Alastar, Scottish MacAllister, Yiddish Sender, impeding Alexander genealogy research.
