Characteristics of Xiomara
Etymology & Historical Origin - Xiomara
Xiomara is a Spanish female name, a Latin American feminized form of the Spanish and Portuguese masculine name Guiomar. Guiomar is most likely a remake of the ancient Germanic Wigmar meaning “famous in war”, from the Proto-Germanic elements “wiga” (war) and “mærjo” (renowned, well-known, famous). The Visigoths, a Germanic barbaric tribe who invaded, occupied (and ultimately assimilated into) the Iberian Peninsula after the sacking of Rome in 410 A.D., probably introduced the name Wigmar to the native Spanish and Portuguese. Eventually the name morphed into Guiomar. Xiomara apparently developed in Latin America as a newly coined female version of this ancient Germanic warrior.
Popularity of the Name Xiomara
Xiomara has so far only had a very brief history on America’s female naming charts. She has only managed to maintain a position on the U.S. Top 1000 list of baby girl names between 2004 and 2010 (having recently fallen off in 2011). In other words, Xiomara is a name used so infrequently – probably less than 100 babies per year – that she doesn’t even show up on our list anymore. Still, there are several things appealing about this name. One, it’s uncommon. Two, it has that “X” factor. And three, it’s a fancy four syllables.
