I remember reading somewhere that he even stole the word Scientology from somewhere else. A German word I think. Gald knows where he got the Xenu idea. Spider Man comics?.
Well, the name Xenu might have been inspired by the Marvel comics character, Xemnu the Titan who first appeared in 1960 : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xemnu
Interestingly, Hubbard spelled his character as both 'Xenu' and 'Xemu', which is obviously two variations of the Marvel character's name. Concincidence?
