This name sounds stunningly gorgeous, but it would be hard to pronounce in English. And the nicknames would surely take away the beauty of the name.

I've loved this name ever since I read the novel "Bring Down the Sun" by Judith Tarr. Polyxena always brings to mind a head-strong, powerful young woman.

According to greek-names.info, Polikseni (po-lee-KSE-nee) is the modern Greek form of Polyxene and means "much hospitality" from the elements poly and xenia (hospitality). Despite being a compound word (two ancient Greek words put together), the name became popular towards the end of the first century BC. This is the name of a 1st-century (AD) Greek Orthodox saint whose name day is celebrated on 23 September. Polina, Kseni and Ksenia are diminutives of Polikseni.
