Xanthe Origin and Meaning

The name Xanthe is 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 extravagant name, which, like many Greek names beginning with X, is pronounced as if it were a Z in English, is derived from the Greek word for the color yellow. A Homeric epithet of Demeter, Xanthe would be a striking choice for a blonde-haired baby girl, thanks to its "golden" meaning.
