"Alexei" is the full name. You can gently "Alyosha" or "Lesha". But even in Russia there are people who perceive “Alyosha” as “Alexandra” (“Sasha”), but this is usually a glitch in the matrix. Heh. By the way, it's funny, but in Moscow I met a girl, her name is Alexa, she is from France. We called her "Asya" or "Lyolya" (this is also affectionately "Alexey" and a few other names). We named her that because she liked it. "Russian" names came from Ancient Greece along with baptism. I think everyone knows this, we just have reductions that are not in other countries. Hmmm, this is interesting, now I want to know more names of other countries and affectionate nicknames... I hope that my pen pals will help me :з (You flatter me) Thanks for talking to me.
