A modern variation of Ximena, Jimena is a feminine name of Spanish origin. An equivalent of the Hebrew name Simon, or Shim'on, Jimena holds its meaning as "listener." Far more than an obedient heeder, Jimena holds sway as a ruling force by virtue of Jimena Díaz's reign as Lady of Valencia. Wife to the medieval Castilian warlord El Cid, Jimena succeeded his throne in 1099 and ruled for several more years until Valencia's fall to the Muslim dynasty. Standing the tests of time, Jimena remains an enduring title that will encourage baby to stay open to wise counsel with little doubt of their capacity.
