For the 'different, not weird' baby namer

Moniker Morsel: Xanthe

on December 2, 2013

Xanthe is not yet ranked in the top 1000 in the U.S., but I think it’s a beautiful name that has potential to make it up there! Xanthe gets along well with trendy Daphne, Phoebe, and Zoe, but I think she has a little extra “X-factor” (no pun intended).

Roots: Xanthe is a Greek name meaning “yellow” or “blonde-haired.”

Famous Xanthe’s: In Greek Mythology, Xanthe is a daughter of Oceanus.

Sibling Name Ideas:

Daphne, Vivian, Marnie, Violet
Andre, Zachariah, Max, Vincent


Xanthe Laurel, Xanthe True
Elena Xanthe, Brenna Xanthe

My thoughts: I LOVE Xanthe! It’s unique yet accessible. I hope to see it rise a bit in popularity!
