xeme (ZEEM) - n., a small Arctic fork-tailed gull (Xema sabini or Larus sabini).


More commonly called Sabine's gull or fork-tailed gull. Authorities seem to agree that the name comes from the genus, and as far as anyone can tell, it's an invented genus name, with no meaning from any roots (it only looks Greek). So, yeah. You can still play it in Scrabble, regardless.
