I once knew someone by this name, spelled this way. I just love it!

05/30/2023 09:41:24

I'met a Lady called Ximena (pronounced as He-men-ah). Se is pretty, enterprising, charI'matic, and naturally sophisticated. i've been researching the meaning for Ximena, but have not been successful so far (mostly I find detailes on origin only). When I was a child, I had a teacher whose name was also Ximena. I thought she was the most amazing woman alive. So, I'm inclined to beli've that the meaning of the name must be fairly close to my description of the wonderful woman I recently discovered and whom I hope to wed some within the next two years.

05/26/2023 19:17:12

It takes a certain kind of girl to carry that name with dignity - I was also teased a lot as a child - the french are no better than the english...but I think it is a beautiful name and hope to grow into it gracefully and rise to the honor!

05/19/2023 01:50:34

I was born in Argentina, even'there X Isn't generally pronounced as an English H, but for my name it is. It's actually and old Spanish name, hence the difference. My name is pronounced "He-meh-nah" with accent on the "meh". Generally the form Jimena or Gimena are prefered, but my parents chose Ximena, and I love it :) But yeah, hardly anyone, if even, can pronounce it correctly :P

my namemis Ximena, and I was really annoyed when I started to go to school, because, I had to wait, like, a week for everyone to get used to saying my name. Some kids at my red pac even stoooped so low as to just call me plain old "X", but once I went to a feild trip, the counsler was TRYING to say my name, but everyone shouted out, "XIMENA!" , saying it just the way I like it to be said. And at that moment, I started to feel very special for having so many good friends, that knew how to pronounce my name. So, now I'm still a little frusterated with my name, but, I'm also proud of it.

12/05/2022 16:40:42

I am naming my daughter Ximena. My partner is from Burgos, Spain, and Ximena was the wife of El Cid, a midieval hero from Burgos. The'sotry goes that El Cid was mortally wounded in battle and died in Ximena's arms. She, knowing that if his men knew he had died, propped him back onto his horse adn sent him back out into battle. He won the battle dead. She was played by Sophia Loren in Charlton Heston's El Cid. I think it is a beautiful name with a history of stren'th and ingenuity. Ximena with the X is actually the old Castillian spelling. Modern Spanish would have it as Jimena, but in keeping with her namesake, I will keep the X.

12/01/2022 02:10:34

My name is Jimena. Pronounced He-men-uh. Growing up I used to hate it because no one could pronounce it and I used to get embarrassed that I had such a strange name. I have grown to LOVE my name. It's so unique and everyone who ears It'says It's such a beautiful name. I have so many nicknames the most common one being Mena. I never understood why people I barely met would always remember me, but now I know that It's because my name is so uncommon that It'seems to stick with people!

11/26/2022 01:23:16

We loved the name and spelling of Aden, but before he was born in 2017 we became painfully aware of just how popular the name was becoming in all its different spelling AND rhyming variations (hayden, kayden, jayden, etc.) We thought it would be too confusing, so we dropped it from our list altogether. However, in'the hospital, we went through the entire list of names we liked, but none of them seemed to fit this new child. Then my brother mentioned that he looked like an Aden, and that was that. The meanings are also terrific and suits our son'to a "t." Though, It's true that the popularity of the name in general can get a little tedious seeing and hearing it frequently with other children. A little tip for those who do have the Aden spelling -- you can find really cool stamps and other kinds of arabic art that have the name Aden in english and also arabic writing on'them on e-bay from the city of Aden (which we plan on decorating his room with when he gets older).

Ximena is pretty, enterprising, charI'matic, naturally sophisticated, but very down to earth. i've been researching the meaning for this name, but so far I ave not been'too successful - mostly I find detailes on origin. When I was a child, I had an amazing teacher whose name was also Ximena. This teacher left a lasting positive impression. I thought she was the most amazing woman alive! So, I'm inclined to beli've that Ximena's meaning must be fairly close to my description of the wonderful woman I recently discovered and whom I hope to marry sometime within the next two years.

My name is also Ximena, my mother gave me this name and from the beginning she wanted that all people would write this name with "X" because at the time I was born there were more "J"imenas than "X"imenas and my mom wanted to make a difference. I have several nicknames which derive from my original name: these are "Mena", "Nena", "Nen'ta" (now you can guess that I am from Colombia), and "Men'ta". Ximena Polania

OK girls! This is the history of "Ximena" name. As some one claimed in one of these comments, the name is taken from the book El Cid Campeador, very important book from the'spainish literature. Do a google search and learn more. The pronunciation and spelling: the original name is spelled with ıXı. The'spanish language has a lot influence from the Arabic language (due to invasions in the past), as the Arabs couldnıt pronounce the ıXı, all the words starting by it, changed to ıJı (ıHı in English). This is the reason of finding: Jimena, Mejico, Javier, Jimenez. When you pronounce the ıXı for the'spanish speaking people, it is the'same than ıcsı, similar to ıccı, try conexiın, Mexico. Fort he English speaking people it would be ıksı. Ximena is a very special name, it is my name. I have traveled the world and in everywhere I have got peopleıs attention and compliments.

09/11/2022 11:30:20

08/18/2022 09:15:36

I taught Spanish language, literature and history at the University of Hawaii and had a particular love of things I named my daughter Ximena. In the history of the language the 12th century pronunciation was X = "sh". As the language developed, the X came to have the "huh" sound of the current letter "J" in Spanish. Since there was no need for two letters to carry the'same sound, the X basically disappeared except in archaic spellings. Ximena = she-may-nah became Ximena = hee-may-nah and more frequently "he-may-na" became Jimena. My daughter loves her name as does anyone who hears it and learns of its wonderful history.

08/14/2022 11:00:54

All my life nobody called me by my real name ether was x-mine or x-e-mena it gets me mad when people dont get it right I just tell them to call me mena but I still love my name I wouldent chance it for the world.

I grew up having my name mispronounced all the time by everyone, sometimes foreigners would be able to say it better but would always say it like hee-meh-na. I have always loved my name because it was unique and am almost always told how beautiful and different it is. I can't shed any light on it original origin or meaning but am open'to find out. i've nicked-named myself "Z" to indicate that my name is pronounced with the "Z" sound and not the "H".

When I first named my son Jack (and he was an infant) people would say "wow what a cool name...only old men are named Jack." Now we are seeing more "Jacks" around..its making a comeback.

My name is Ximena and many people pronounce it wrong, I have found that for english speakers it is easy to tell them that the correct pronounciation is He-me-na

Inter'stingly if you pronounce the first half of "Ximena" - which sound like "Hime" it will translate to "Princess" in Japanese ;)

Hello All, my name is Ximena pronounced za-me-na and I was born in June of 1982. I love my name but hate it when it is mispronounced by saying xzemena so I go by Z which is just as cool as my name.

Hi! My name is Chemeine. It is the French version of Ximena. I was born in 1980 - the'same year that the movie "El Cid" came out. Sophia Loren played Ximena - her name was actually Dona Ximena (pronounced Don-ya He-meh-nah) and she was indeed El Cid's wife. My father loved the name, and chose the French version of Ximena for me -- Chemeine. My name is pronounced Sha-mane.

Many people want to spell it Jimena to make it a Mexican sounding name, most people pronounce it Zee-mina. The correct way to pronounce it is He-man-na

My daugther is 5 years old and she was worried about her named, because she is learning about begining sounds and reading and she asked me. why her daddy and me called her ximena with x ?and I was trying to explain her that ximena is a beautiful name and where it comes from and all the explanation that we can give to her, but we are working on that now, because some friends of the'school bother her and she is only in kindergarten.

Ximena is the name of El Cid's wife. The poem of El Cid Campeador tells the'story of Rodrigo Diaz de Bivar, a central figure in the'struggle between Christianity and Islam in medieval Spain. The annonymous poem written about El Cid, tells of his conquests and stuggles as a military and folk hero. My mother was reading this book while pregnant and decided to use Ximena if she had a girl. I was born in Argentina, so as a child I never had a problem with pronunciation, but English speakers just don't have the "X" sound mastered and i've been called anything from Exemena, Eximia all the way to Zenia! I still love my name and after reading the poem and history of El Cid, I'm proud to have it. My family has always pronounced the X as an S sound, so my name has always been See-men-a.

I had a friend in high school with this name. She pronounced it with a Z like Zimena but of course with an x. She was Philippians. I always liked it. Its unique & i like unique names.

My mother was a literature teacher in Chile and she chose the name because of 'El poema del mio Cid'. When I'moved to live in Australia they called me every name under the'sun to avoid the confrontation of saying my name. THe X in my country of origin is soft so I tell people to say it He-man-a. They always tell me the name is original, unique, soft in sound, sexy and very feminine, and some people have never heard of it before. I wouldn't change it as my personality wouldn't be the'same!
