The name is ancient in origin. It derives from the original name Polixeni which means very hospitable to strangers. Zeus, the king of the ancient gods (his name in greek is Dias) was called Xenios Dias who was protector of travelers as well. There have been several famous women with the name Polixeni. One was a muse. The other was the daughter of the King of Troy. She was famously in love with Achilles. It is not a very common name in greece but that's the interesting part. There is a hotel chain in Greece with the name Xenia as well. They put the emphasis on the i. But the emphasis is used on the e and the x in the beginning sounds like the x in exotic or expensive. I hope this helps you to name your daughter this name. Everyone always remarks on it.

XI'mara Alfaro, a soprano voice pop singer from Cuba was born in 1930. I'm not Cuban and It's possible that I was named after XI'mara Alfaro in the 1940s. In any case, the best explanation i've heard about the meaning of the name, is that there was a native tribe in Cuba named XI'mara. As far as I know, XI'mara Alfaro is the original since I don't know of any other XI'mara older than she. i've not seen any evidence that the name comes from Greece or any Arab country.

My name is Zena, mine is spelled with a Z, I have no clue why... I don't like it all that much because when my name is called they say it wrong 90% of the time, and people look at me weird for having that as my name. When I introduce myself people say "oh like Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century!" No, my name is ZENA, not Zenon.

Great show. Five years ago, we named our daughter Xena Hercules Jones, and now she takes everyone's lunch money in kindergarden.

I know someone named Xena, definitely named after Xena the warrior princess. I find the name unique and striking, easy to remember. I love the name. But I'm from the Philippines and people often pronounce the name as "se-na". So if I'd name my child as such, I'd spell it as Zeena so people won't mispronounce. To Xena (Feb. 9, 2019), I certainly know how hard it is to bear a name you don't like, more so if you hate. We have different reasons to like or hate a name--even our own. Are you of legal age now❤️ Go ahead and change it. Choose a name that will make you happy and feel proud of it.

I just gave birth to beautiful baby girl and I named her Xena. And I did get it from the'show, "Xena the warrior princess" I don't know why people named Xena dont't like the association. If you watched the'show, you would be honored to be named after'such a character. My husband and I are both Martial Artist so having a baby warrior princess was very fitting!!!
