Name of the title character in Xena: Warrior Princess.
-- sodivine  7/26/2005
This name first came into usage in English in 1993, in West Hollywood, California. I invented it for my female Jack Russell Terrier, because she had big eyes and an intergalatic, extra-planetary look about her. Later, a Hollywood TV producer who liked her name used it for the TV program, "Xena, Warrior Princess". Today, it has been chosen as the name of the recently discovered 10th planet.

I think Xena is a beautiful name. A name I would call my child.

Just don't. Will someone please think of the children?
-- SerasVictoria  7/22/2006
It makes a great nickname or name for a pet. I think anyone who was actually called this by their parents as their real name, though, would be made fun of.

I don't think I would name my child this, but I might name a cat or dog this, as it seems too "pettish", for a child.

Love love love this name! :) I would like for my kids to have a unique (but not silly) name, and Xena is strong and beautiful. So why not use Xena?!

Oh, I love this name! It's just kind of solid and out there. It reminds me of an ambitious young girl.

This is a great name. I picture a confident brunette who's studying to be a lawyer. And I'd rather be associated with a princess who defends herself than with one who stands there all day looking pretty.

Tacky name that comes from a show that really bothers me.

I love this name, but I think it's best for a dog or cat.

It's an interesting name. I would never name my child Xena, but for some reason I wish I knew someone named Xena.

It's a cool name, but seeing as it was most likely created for a TV series, I wouldn't use it.

Xena could be based on the Russian name Zina, which is a diminutive of Zinaida.

I, personally, really like this name, and would use it. I don't find the association with the 90's program a bad one at all; I rather like the show, and the character was a strong one.

This would look tacky on a real person. I wouldn't recommend it.

The name Xena was given to 51 baby girls born in the US in 2012, ranking relatively low compared to other popular culture names such as Beyonce and Renesmee.

When naming a character for the show Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, rather than looking up a preexisting name (see Xenia), the writers took inspiration from the Ancient Greek word ξενος (xenos) meaning "stranger, foreigner" to create a unique sounding name for her.

Unfortunately, my name is Xena. I've always despised it, ever since I was a child; too many references to the TV show. Adults tended to think that my name was "really cool" but my peers did not. I remember this one kid giving me trouble because my name 'didn't match my race' because I'm super white, but whatever. Point is, it sounds cool but not as a name for an actual human being. Don't inflict this name on a child. Also, the name 'Senja' is a nicer alternative and both names come from 'Xenia' :)

A catchy and strong sounding name; I like it. Probably because I liked Xena the warrior princess. But if I were to give the name to my child, I'd alter the spelling (Zeena) to avoid mispronunciation, and I'll compound it with another name. Giving that name alone, I think, may pose challenges to the child and parents as well.
