Comments for XERXES:

This is one of my favorite boys' names. I love the way it sounds, and love the way it looks handwritten.

Hm, an odd name. But I like it! It's not very common, and it sounds very, well, simply put, cool!

King Xerxes was also the man who married a Jewish girl named Hadassah. The story is contained in the book of Esther in the Bible. Also called Ahasuerus.

If this is a Persian spelling, you might want to move it out of the English section. ;)

King Xerxes was "different" to put it mildly. When a bridge he had built collapsed, he ordered that the sea be given 50(?) lashes; he then had the bridge builders beheaded. When one of his countrymen gave him a monetary donation, he returned the money along with a gift; when this same man asked his son be excused from the army, Xerxes had the son cut in half and his army marched between the pieces.

There is something oddly appealing about this name.

I think Xerxes is a really cool name, but I don't think I would ever give my kid this name as it is a little too out there.

Xerxes spelled backwards is "Sex rex".

Other than that, I like this name.

Opera by Handel (Serse in Italian). Contains what is probably the most beautiful tune of all time, the famous 'Largo' -'Ombra mai fu'.

I love this name, in my opinion it is a very masculine name. But I doubt it is usable as a first name here in Denmark, so I guess I have to use it as a middle name. Would love to have a Julian Xerxes.

Doesn't really sound usable, especially not after 300's rendition of Xerxes, which portrays him as an effeminate 7 foot tall bald man wearing gold briefs and tons of jewelry. I always get that frightening image from it. Plus the movie 300 really stinks.

In an episode of Family Guy, Peter named his new falcon Xerxes. I think it's a pretty cool name for a pet, especially one like a snake or a Rottweiler.
