Anyway, the weirdness of the word got me researching and I came across a whole host of phobias beginning with the letter X. Here they are below:
Xanthophobia: Fear of the colour yellow or the word yellow.
Xenoglossophobia: Fear of foreign languages.
Xenophobia: Fear of strangers or foreigners.
Xerophobia: Fear of dryness.
Xylophobia: 1) Fear of wooden objects. 2) Forests.
Xyrophobia: Fear of razors.
Can you even imagine what it would mean to live with any of these???
