This is an abbreviation for the word Christian. It comes from the Greek name for Christ, Xristos, and is essentially the same notation as we commonly see with Xmas.
Another variation on this is Xtian, although the addition of the extra t is not entirely proper.
Used as a cool alternative to Christian, which is a whole lot of letters, albeit a really wicked name.
Xian is such a rad dude, mad props.
