So I live In Australia and my parents are of Lebanese background. My name is also zena and is pronounced by puting emphasis on the 'n' as in zenna. Every zena i have met has been absolutely stunning which I'm sure you all are. I think its important to name your children as something they are confident in using because in the end it will determine their personality. Ps. I adore my name xoxo

Hi, I'm a Zena, living in the UK. Now 67...used to meet lots of very old ladies called Zena over when I was a kid, and always thought of it being some kind of Victorian hangover from the Empire days.

However, I saw a shop in a tiny village in Tanzania named Zena, there's a wine in Cyprus with the'same name...Also got the Xena Warrior Princess thing some years back, I thought that was a good laugh!

This morning, I was informed by my son that my second grandchild (also a son) had arrived and all was well. Then he told me his newborn son's name. "Beckett." [Beckett Christopher] I was flabbergasted. "Huh❤️" But, now, this site has put me more at ease, except for one thing: Sir Thomas A'Beckett, Archbishop of Canterbury, England, back in the 1100's (and to whom we're distantly related, so I'd been'told), was murdered by King Henry II. Our first grandson's (older brother's) name❤️ Henry! Oh well, I'll get over it. ;-)

Hello all. I am another Zena from England. My mother gave me this name because her head girl at school was called that and she loved the name and it was different, the'same reasons I have always loved it. Now of course,I often get called Warrior Princess, but I don't mind that at all. It's a great ice breaker. I have always understood the origin of my name to be Persian and to mean 'woman'. I have only ever met one other Zena in person.

I named my daughter "Zena." She is now 16. We live in a suburb of Washington, DC. She has the luxury of being known mainly by her first name. Once, however, we were in a movie theater, also in DC, and I kept hearing someone call "Zena, Zena." I kept looking around, wondering who was chastising my daughter. It turned out to be another family, who had not only named their daughter Zena, but had given her the MIDDLE NAME of Zena AS WELL. They loved the name'so much they called her Zena Xena, or some such variation on the'spelling. That blew me away.

10/28/2022 17:19:44

My name is Zena, I live in Scotland. I was called after my godmother Tomasina, called Zena. She lives in US, although originally Scottish. I love my name, she hates he's. I love it cos people either remember it or forget it completely. Usually the people who forget it are not worth remembering. It's fun, different, unique, unusual, unpredictable and surprising. All like me. I have even met a black poodle and a golden labrador called Zena. They were special moments, since I love dogs. I have travelled a fair bit and its amazing how many times I have been asked, "Are you, Greek, Egyptian, African, Iranian bla bla. Anyway, Zena's are usually confident, strong, friendly, unique & independant sexy women. So I have been'told!

Can you beli've we have a welder named after us!

06/06/2022 14:31:30

I have never meet anyone with the'same name as Zena, and I have traveled all over the'states. I enjoy it, but older people tend to call me Dena instead of Zena.There have also been a couple of times when my mail read Zennia instead of Zena. I beli've that it is the female version of Xenos, which means stranger. Hence, hospitality towards strangers. Also, there is some Arabic history attached to it.

My baptised name is zinovia, as passed on from my greek generations. There is a greek-cyprian Saint Zinovia who died for Christ, my name day is on 30th October. I have grown up with Gina in Australia, i later changed it to Zina in late highschool and had many teasing me as Xena Warrior Princess..i came to eventually like it, but i have used other'similar names such as Zena, Zinaida at times. I have cousins with the name Zina all of which are strong characters with confidence. I have met another greek Zinovia in australia which she uses Jenny..currently living in england i have heard it persian,scottish, russion name also. There was an arabic princess they say. In arabic zina means unmaritual sex and sin. In Morrocan Zina means beauty as a flower. in ancient greek it means life from Zeus. I beli've it is nice to have a name which is unusual, since i like to be different.
