Who is the man in the picture?

  • $\begingroup$ As generally it goes ... Alex is the name of a male person :-) $\endgroup$ – Mea Culpa Nay Oct 30 '17 at 8:22
  • $\begingroup$ @MeaCulpaNay Alexandra (the female version) which is also shortened to Alex is a really popular name $\endgroup$ – lPlant Oct 30 '17 at 14:05

    $\begingroup$ @MeaCulpaNay Nope. Alex says "Father's son". Thus, Alex has to be a male. $\endgroup$ – Sid Oct 30 '17 at 14:40
