Meaning:Aztec goddess of fertility, childbearing and the maguey plant
Mayahuel is a girl’s name of Aztec origin. In Aztec culture, Mayahuel is one of a number of interrrelated maternal and fertility goddesses, and is closely associated with the maguey plant. This plant was used to make rope and octli, later known as pulque, an alcoholic beverage made from the sap of the maguey. Pulque featured prominently in public ceremonies and rituals in the Aztec empire. If you’re of Aztec heritage, why not pay homage to this ancient goddess by giving baby her name?
