zenia

The meaning of Zenia is ‘hospitality’ or ‘guest’. It is a name typically given to girls and is of Greek origin. It is derived from the Greek word 'xénos,' meaning 'guest.' Zenia is a variation of Xenia, which was an expression for the Greek hospitality concept. The word was inspired by the Greek god Zeus who was extremely hospitable to outsiders. In Ancient Greece, the word 'xenos' has been used to denote a 'guest,' who had to be treated with kindness by the Greek gods and commoners. According to ancient culture, hosts have to love and care for their guests and guests have to appreciate their efforts and not pose a threat to their hosts. The term 'theoxenia' derives from the words 'xenia' and 'theos', which means 'deity'. It is a custom that gods pose as 'guests' or 'foreigners' and seek hospitality from their hosts, and even reward their hosts if they are content. A variant of Zenia is Xenia, which is the first name of Saint Blessed Xenia of St. Petersburg, a patron who demonstrated altruism by donating all her belongings to the poor.
