TaliaCat Says:


This is a beautiful name of indigenous Mexican/Central American origin, possibly Nahuatl (Aztec)... I have no idea what they're talking about "Reality TV Name." Who came up with that? This name is probably 2 millenia old!

Daiseymae Says:


Someone down the road from me is named Xiomara. She also has it blazoned on her candy truck. She is of latin origin.

autumnreverie Says:


Xiomara is the original form.

First heard this name on Jane the Virgin, I think it's absolutely beautiful. I like the nickname Xo, like the Jane the Virgin character uses.

That write up is terrible and another example how anglo-centric Nameberry is. Whoever is writing/editing/proofing has yet to learn to Google or ask their latin@ co-workers first. If they had they would know to reference Xiomara Alfaro—one of the greatest Cuban singers from the 50s.

I agree. Plus it fails to realize that this "reality tv name" is really someone's name. I guess it's to be demeaning of reality tv stars, but without remembering the names were given to them long before that. Of course it's also linking reality tv with trash. Not fair in the name discussion, in my opinion.

BV Beauregarde Says:


The write-up on this name is rather racist. Calling it a "reality TV" name is a rude way of dismissing what is a very common name in Latin America. Just because it is not common in the US doesn't mean it's "trashy" or whatever the author is trying to imply. Plus, the name is certainly not Aramaic! It probably comes from Guiomar (famous in battle).
