Citlali was the name my mom was going to give me originally, but due to certain circumstances she couldn't. When my mom first told me about this name, she said that it was the name of an ancient moon goddess. Of course, me being my curious self, I looked up the name in many different sourses and found that they all said that Citlali meant 'star'. My mom and I have argued about it, and me, being the nice person that I am, have decided to put up a second meaning to the name Citlali. Citlali means..... Goddess of Moon.

My father is of Aztec/Mexica descent. I was named Citlalli because of this. Nahuatl is the language of the Aztecs and Citlalli is Nahuatl for star. I have also seen it spelled Xitlalli, however this is probably incorrect as the "X" in nahuatl is pronounced as "sh". There is a hill in Mexico called Citlaltepec - it means "the hill of the star".

I am not Hispanic but I love this name. I would like to name a daughter of mine Citlali. I first heard this in high school and she was very smart & pretty.

I have named my daughter CITLALI. When I first heard that name I liked it so much that I ran and told my husband about it and he loved it. On my baby shower the cake said Welcome Citlali. We were sure that we would name her Citlali. It meas a Star in Nahuatl. And yes she is the light of the star in our lives.

As a person with Nahua ancestry, I think this is a beautiful strong name, no offence to any Caucasian girl named Citlati, but I feel that is is a name only Mestiza and/or Indigenous girls can pull off.

I was pleasantly surprised to learn the day of my grand-daughter's birth that her mother gave her the name Citlali. I consider the name not only beautiful, but feel that it has an immense spiritual significance to our families as we come together. Shine on my precious STAR.

Citlali is one of my favourite girl's names, and I adore it. It inspires a feeling of mysticality and enchantment that's so beautiful, and to the ear it's a very lovely, flowing sound. It sounds both cool and beautiful, and I love the meaning of "star". Astronomical names are so cool. I think it would be nice to pair a name that means "moon", like Luna or Aynur, with Citlali. And there's the cute nickname possibility of Lali.

This is a beautiful name with an equally beautiful meaning. I know a Xitlali who pronounces her name just like Citlali (beginning with a soft C).

I was named Citlalli by my father who was fluent in the Aztec language Nahuatl. The correct spelling is Citlalli. Many latinos remove an "l" due to Spanish pronunciation of the "ll" sounding like a "Y". However, Nahuatl has no such rule therefor Citlalli with "ll" is still pronounced with an "L" sound.
Citlalli is the Nahualt word for star and Citlallin is the plural form meaning stars.
