Xilo - pronounced as Silo, as in repository?
(IIf it has not been used elsewhere.)

I must admit, I quite like "Xintian", but feel we should aim for gender
neutral names.

I have the same opinion but I'm staying out of it because

How about "Xindy"? Pronounced like "Cindy", of course. I
think it's cool to give a project a female name and it
sort of suggests "XML index" when I look at it. 

And in the area of names, a lot of Chinese names start 
with an 'X'. For example, I once had a Chinese student 
with a cool name: "Xintian". I had to have her pronounce 
it for me the first time I saw it written but I think I 
remember it sounding something like "sin-tea-in" or 
perhaps "shin-tea-in". (Any Chinese or Chinese speaking 
developers out there that can correct me?)

I'm only suggesting these if you want to stick with
something with an 'X' for XML. But there's nothing that
says it *has* to have a token 'X' in the name...
