Xanthe Origin and Meaning

The name Xanthe is a girl's name of Greek origin meaning "golden, yellow".
X marks the spot in names these days, usually at the middles or ends of names, but here is one that puts it squarely up front.

This exotic name, which, like all Greek names beginning with 'x' is pronounced as if it were a 'z', is derived from the Greek word for the color yellow. A Homeric epithet of Demeter, Xanthe, which arose as a name for a blonde, conjures up an image of an exotic, other-worldly being.

Xenia is another alluring "X' name, this one meaning 'hospitality.
