    I know someone with the name in their 40's. She is of Greek descent.
    Not a fan of the name personality or of middle names in general (they're barely used so pick what you like or something that has meaning to you)

    I like the name -
    It's pretty. I think for a middle name - simple makes the first name shine. So, I like Rose. Just an opinion!

    I don't like it personally I think it sounds like an antibiotic cream or something.

    If I was to choose a middle name to go with it probably willow.

    I like it. Is it pronounced Zan-thee?

    Default Xanthe...

    I like it.

    The only Xanthe I've known would be in her 20's now. Her mother ended up changing the spelling to Zanthe as she got sick of people pronouncing her name Ex-Anne-Thee. Same thing that happens with Xavier.

    I like Xanthe Isobel.

    Yes I like it and know a couple of young kids with it. One is a friend of ds. Any of those middles names is nice.

    I prefer Xanthia.

    Having said that, I do know someone in her 40s named Xanthe, who is a really really nice person, so I do have a very positive association with the name.

    This is my name
    I don't have a middle name.
    I have had to spell it a lot and pronounce it, and have had lots of comments over the years but I still love it, and have had lots of comments on how nice it is.
    Im mid thirties.
