Iskander

Origin: Turkish

Meaning: a Turkish form of Alexander, which means “defender of men” or “defending men”.

Variants: Iskinder, Iscander

Gender: Male

I think I really prefer this version of Alexander. There’s also the nickname Skander (as in the actor Skander Keynes, who was born Alexander).
