When Cortez arrived in Mexico, Montezuma called him Quetzalcoatl, the name of their sun god. It is pronounced GWAHT-sell-GWAHT-tay.

Pronounced /ke-tzal-co-Atel/ or /ket-sal-kwattle/.

Good luck to my fellow anglophones with managing to say this name without actually getting a tongue cramp!

I like this name. I think I'll name one of my boys this name. I don't care about the god Quetzalcoatl, because I just like the name for how it is spelled. It's so unique! If you make fun of this name you just don't know what cool is.

I've always heard it as ket-sul-koh-AH-tul in English.

I've always heard it as "Kw-ets-el-kw-ah-tel." Very fun to say, not so much fun to have.

I've actually known one girl with this name. She went by the nickname Kiki.

I like this name and all. But I can't imagine knowing an actual person with this name and having to go, "Hey, Quetzalcoatl!" every time I saw him. I'd probably shorten it to just Quetzal. Even if it does sound like pretzel.

Just because a name is on here doesn't mean it's actually used on people, remember! I can't imagine this mouthful on a person!

Sounds like a great name for a newly discovered species of dinosaur.

He'll be the last person in his kindergarten class to spell his name.
