Since masculine 'Xenos' means in Greek 'stranger', 'Xenia/Xena' could probably be interpreted as its feminine variant (like 'Barbara').

I know several Russian people with this name, and they pronounce it Ks-ey-nee-uh. Somewhat better-sounding in my ears.

Formerly Greek then transformed by the Polish to be spelled "Ksenia" and becoming a Russian name meaning "kind hospitable and generous". Grand Duchess Anasatia Romanoff's favorite aunt was named Ksenia; one of the few to escape the killing.

An Anglicized version of this name, used in Australia, is Kesenya or Kasenya. Taken from the Russian Kseniya.

I know a Polish girl who bears this name, spelled the original Greek way, instead of the common Polish way with the letter K. Her parents were born and raised in Poland, and they called her "IX-YEN-EE-A"

Another famous bearer of the name is the eighteenth-century Russian saint, St. Xenia of St. Petersburg.

Xenia is an unbelievably awesome name! It starts with an X, a rare and spunky starting letter; and it sounds close to Xena without actually being Xena: Warrior Princess. It also has a long history, with a famous namesake as early as the 5th century. Xenia is both elegant and legitimately "cool" at the same time.

This name, with the spelling Xènia, is used in Catalan.

I should add that some sites say that the Catalan Xènia originally developed as a nickname for Eugènia, the Catalan form of Eugenia, rather than from the Greek Xenia.

Pronunced "KSEN-yah".

I used the variant Kseniya in one of my stories to name a beautiful white wolf. I think it works really well, and I think of a gracious, pretty and loving girl when I hear it.
blackiesunshine  2/3/2017
In Greek, pronunced "kse-NEE-ah" and the English pronunciation is "ZEEN-ee-ə".

The Actor/Dancer main character in Dance Academy is called Xenia Goodwin and she pronounces it SHEN-ya (sort of like Jenya).
