A SF Chron article states:
Informally, the astronomers have been calling it "Xena" after the television series about a Greek warrior princess, which was popular when the astronomers began their systematic sweep of the sky in 2000. "Because we always wanted to name something Xena," Brown said...XENA? <sigh>. Aw, c'mon guys! Where's the love? So close, and yet one vowel away.
