Meet your little bundle of sunshine, Xanthus. This masculine name is a radiant choice for baby, as it means "golden," "yellow," and "fair-haired." It's close to the Xanthos, the alternate name of the mighty "river god" Scamander in Greek mythology. Xanthos was the son of Titan gods Oceanus and Tethys, who fought alongside the Greeks during the Trojan War. While Apollo and Ares may be more familiar, Xanthus' rarity is part of its allure. Your little one will look on the sunnier side of life and happily share their joy with others!
