You will find the term commonly used in mathematics, physics and astronomy, usually as part of a formula or equation.

However, Scrabble tournaments allow the use of Xi because it is a word and not just a numeral. The word has been around since the 15th century, but people rarely use it today. The exception, of course, is Scrabble tournaments, where it gets a fair amount of play thanks to its high point value and low effort requirement.
