Today brought to you by the letter X

And now, since I can't think of anything for 'x', a list of words in the x-section of the dictionary that sound cool.

  • Xanadu

  • xanthate

  • xanthphyll

  • xebec

  • xenia (totally want to name a character this now)

  • xeric

  • Xhosa

  • xiphoid

  • xylan

  • xylitol

  • xylose

Man, Firefox tells me most of those are spelled wrong. X is so weird. Many of those deal with chemicals and the color yellow, I don't quite understand it. Nor this tongue twister. But I rarely understand those to begin with :/

  1. I'm sure Margaret Atwood had a character called Xenia (or maybe she spelled it Zenia) in The Robber Bride... bit of really random info there :-)

    Well done for getting X words into the post (I didn't lol)

  2. I've never seen Xanadu.

    Without checking, I think a xebec could be some sort of gazelle-like creature. That's probably totally off though.

    Other than that I'm clueless! It is a funny letter, isn't it? :)

  3. I like Xhosa, now I have to look that up and see what it is. There's a town near here named Xenia, it does seem like a great character name.

  4. There's not a lot one can do with and 'X', but I think you did very well.
    My post slid in under the yellow type.

  5. I agree. Xenia would be a cool character name.
