"Hi, I'm a Zena, living in the UK. Now 67...used to meet lots of very old ladies called Zena over when I was a kid, and always thought of it being some kind of Victorian hangover from the Empire days. I still do sometimes bump into someone with the same name, but not so often these days. However, I saw a shop in a tiny village in Tanzania named Zena, there's a wine in Cyprus with the same name...Also got the Xena Warrior Princess thing some years back, I thought that was a good laugh!"

I also get 'oh like the warrior princess' a ton, but it doesn't bother me, I just laugh. My mom had a pair of Zena jeans in the 80's and named me after them..they were very popular in the 80's. I still have a pair from her and its cool because it says Zena on the back belt area." Nov. 17, 2015:

"I have never meet anyone with the same name as Zena, and I have traveled all over the States. I enjoy it, but older people tend to call me Dena instead of Zena.There have also been a couple of times when my mail read Zennia instead of Zena. I believe that it is the female version of Xenos, which means stranger. Hence, hospitality towards strangers. Also, there is some Arabic history attached to it." May. 22, 2009:

"I named my daughter "Zena." She is now 16. We live in a suburb of Washington, DC. She has the luxury of being known mainly by her first name. Once, however, we were in a movie theater, also in DC, and I kept hearing someone call "Zena, Zena." I kept looking around, wondering who was chastising my daughter. It turned out to be another family, who had not only named their daughter Zena, but had given her the MIDDLE NAME of Zena AS WELL. They loved the name so much they called her Zena Xena, or some such variation on the spelling. That blew me away." May. 27, 2010:

"My name is Zena, I live in Scotland. I was called after my godmother Tomasina, called Zena. She lives in US, although originally Scottish. I love my name, she hates hers. I love it cos people either remember it or forget it completely. Usually the people who forget it are not worth remembering. It's fun, different, unique, unusual, unpredictable and surprising. All like me. I have even met a black poodle and a golden labrador called Zena. They were special moments, since I love dogs. I have travelled a fair bit and its amazing how many times I have been asked, "Are you, Greek, Egyptian, African, Iranian bla bla. Anyway, Zena's are usually confident, strong, friendly, unique & independant sexy women. So I have been told!" Aug. 2, 2009:

"Hello all. I am another Zena from England. My mother gave me this name because her head girl at school was called that and she loved the name and it was different, the same reasons I have always loved it. Now of course,I often get called Warrior Princess, but I don't mind that at all. It's a great ice breaker. I have always understood the origin of my name to be Persian and to mean 'woman'. I have only ever met one other Zena in person." May. 9, 2009:

"My baptised name is zinovia, as passed on from my greek generations. There is a greek-cyprian Saint Zinovia who died for Christ, my name day is on 30th October. I have grown up with Gina in Australia, i later changed it to Zina in late highschool and had many teasing me as Xena Warrior Princess..i came to eventually like it, but i have used other similar names such as Zena, Zinaida at times. I have cousins with the name Zina all of which are strong characters with confidence. I have met another greek Zinovia in australia which she uses Jenny..currently living in england i have heard it persian,scottish, russion name also. There was an arabic princess they say. In arabic zina means unmaritual sex and sin. In Morrocan Zina means beauty as a flower. in ancient greek it means life from Zeus. I believe it is nice to have a name which is unusual, since i like to be different." Dec. 29, 2006:
