Xaviana - anyone heard of this name?

I just came across this name (on a real little girl), apparently a feminized version of [name]Xavier[/name]. She pronounced it Zah-vee-ahn-ah, and goes by Xaia (Zay-ah) for short. I’m not sure what I think about it; it hit me off-guard. What are your thoughts?

I guess I would have thought that a feminized form of [name]Xavier[/name] would be [name]Xaviera[/name] or Xavia, but I guess I’ve never really heard of any of them. I kind of like Xaviana but it could be made up. Like Xaia nn though!

I don’t like [name]Xaviera[/name], and put Xaviana in the same category, and I guess I’ll have to tell you why. http://www.xavierahollander.com/

[name]Little[/name] kids wouldn’t know who she was, but dirty old men would!

WOW! Good point! I had never heard of her myself, but I don’t think this is the type of attention I would want to draw to one of my daughters! :slight_smile: Thanks for the eye-opener!
