Xiomara Origin and Meaning

The name Xiomara is a girl's name meaning "famous in battle".

The gorgeous and romantic name Xiomara popped into the Top 1000 from 2004-2011 after a contestant on America's Next Top Model increased interest in her rare name.

Now Xiomara is back and more popular than ever before. This second boost may have something to do with a character by the name on the popular telenovela Jane the Virgin.

Xiomara is unsurprisingly much more common in Spanish-speaking countries, particularly those in Central and South America. Xiomara Alfaro was an iconic Cuban bolero singer from the midcentury. She was known as La Alondra de la Cancion — The Lark of Music.
