Etymology & Historical Origin - Xavi

Xavi is a diminutive of the Spanish masculine name Xavier. The name Xavier comes from a Basque surname which originated as a place name, from the Basque word “Etcheberria” meaning “the new house”. Xavier is the heavily mutated Spanish form of Etcheberria which originated in the Middle Ages. In the 16th century, the name was borne by Saint Francis Xavier who was one of the co-founders of the Society of Jesus (more commonly known as the Jesuits). Xavier was eventually used as a personal name in homage to Francisco de Xavier as he’s known in Spanish-speaking countries. The name Xavier is almost exclusively used among Spanish Catholics and Xavi developed as a common Catalan diminutive. Today Xavi is used as an independently given name and ranks impressively high on the charts in Catalonia, Spain as well as the Netherlands.

Popularity of the Name Xavi

Xavi is brand new to the American male naming charts; he only first appeared in 2010. This name hasn’t even had time to climb the charts yet, and so still resides at the bottom. Not very common, Xavi is used primarily among Hispanic-Americans as a colloquial, informal form of Xavier. Usage of Xavi was likely inspired by Spanish footballer Xavier Hernández i Creus known simply as “Xavi”. Xavi has been a stand-out soccer player for the Spanish national team which won the 2010 World Cup (the same year Xavi made his first appearance on the American name charts). The name Iker has enjoyed the same push in popularity thanks to a Spanish footballer.
