Proving that astronomers are geeks...

They "nicknamed" that new planet they discovered Xena. For an added bonus, they named the moon Gabrielle. Good to see they've appeased the Dragon-Con/lesbian crowd. Wonder if that name's going to stick... all the other planets are named after gods and goddesses... and the new one's named after a fictional character who never existed but who hung out in ancient Greece/Rome/Judea/where ever. Perfect sense.
