Meaning:Aztec deity of the moon, night, and farmers
Metztli is a gender-neutral name of Aztec origin, belonging to the Aztec deity of the moon, night, and farmers. It’s unclear whether Metztli was a god or goddess, and some sources suggest they are the same being as the moon goddess Yohaulticetl and the moon god Tecciztecatl. In Aztec legend, the sun and moon were once equally bright. To protect the Earth from burning light, the sun threw a rabbit at the moon, which became darkened and created the “Rabbit on the Moon.” A mystical name offering a wealth of celestial charm, Metztli is a radiant choice.
