Personal experiences with the name Xanthe: | Edit

My name is Xanthe. When I tell people my name what usually follows is repeated pronunciations of it, and spellings, and explanations. Eventually I just give up and let people call me whatever they want. As a child it was difficult, as an adult it's a hassle to have a name that needs to be constantly reiterated.

My cousin is called Xanthe - smart people either know it straight away or need an explanation only once. Less smart people - well, you can't build your life around them! It is a beautiful name - only problem is it reminds me of Xanthic gum....
