When the logo is of an X imprinted into a sphere?

DirectXbox is where the name came from.

Assuming you are actually serious and asking the question. The name xbox was short for DirectX Box.

First, there were our code names, which were WEP – ‘Windows Entertainment Project’ – designed to make Microsoft executives comfortable, Midway – ‘Midway between a PC and a console or ‘Battle of Midway’ – you decide – and DirectX Box, which was shortened to xbox in email very early on.”
