Ximena is a ♀ female name.
Ximena is a feminine form of the masculine name Ximeno, which derived from the name Simon and is of Basque origin. Ximena was the wife of the Castilian knight and Spanish national hero El Cid (Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar, 1045-1099).
Ximena means “he has heard” (from Hebrew “shamá/שָׁמַע” = to hear/to listen). From Basque “seme”, Ximena means “son”, which is unfortunately inappropriate for girls.
