Origin:Native American
Meaning:Star of the aurora sky
Itzel is a native-American girl's name meaning "rainbow" or "rainbow lady." Luckily for baby, rainbows are a universal symbol of hope and a brighter future ahead. But this name’s depth doesn’t only lie with the indigenous tradition of the United States! It is also a diminutive of the name Ixchel, who was the Mayan goddess of the moon and earth. This colorful first name invoking the celestial plane makes sense when considering how vibrant life will feel with baby on board!
