Dear 7 year-old Alexi,I know you are very sad about having a weird name, and your mom just told you that you officially cannot change it to plain ol’ Mary. You’re bummed out that you have to buy all your novelty pencils and tiny license plates with “Alexis” on it, then add a squished apostrophe after the i so that the item becomes your possession. I know you feel like you don’t even have a real name. But guess what. One day, your Russian boys’ name will actually be cool. Yours, 25 year-old Alexi

Dear 7 year-old Alexi,

I know you are very sad about having a weird name, and your mom just told you that you officially cannot change it to plain ol’ Mary. You’re bummed out that you have to buy all your novelty pencils and tiny license plates with “Alexis” on it, then add a squished apostrophe after the i so that the item becomes your possession. I know you feel like you don’t even have a real name. But guess what. One day, your Russian boys’ name will actually be cool. 

Yours,
 25 year-old Alexi
