I have know a few girls with this name, only they spelled it "Xochilt".

There is a contestant on Flavor of Love (on VH1) with this name. She was nicknamed "Miss Latin" by Flava Flav. She spells it "Xotchitl".

I've met a couple of girls with this name but it's funny because this one time I was making a story and I had to name a charcter who was a snobby girl, so I ask my friend "what name do you think is the most snobbiest?" and he said that it was this one, but still I think it's cool and very Mexican (I'm Mexican!)

I love saying it.

I see that others pronounce it differently, but I've always pronounced it as so'chul. My nickname is Xochie, pronounced so'chee. There is a new tortilla chip on the market (here in Texas) named Xochitl, but pronounced so'shee.

This name is meant to be pronounced Ho-chee-tl; not So-chee or So-shee.

I have only ever heard this name pronounced Zo-Cheel (Zo as pronounced like the Z-O in Zoe. Cheel is pronounced to rhyme with feel).

Cool name. The proper Nahuatl pronunciation is shoh-cheetl, but it's still acceptable to pronounce it so-chee, zo-chee, or ho-chee.

Some other pronunciations include so-cheel, zo-cheel, ho-cheel, and so on.

I read the word “Xochitl” comes from the Nahuatl stem "xotla" which means "to catch fire; to bloom, blossom". I think it's interesting how Xochitl has a second meaning (like Daisy also means "day's eye"). I love this name! It's beautiful. Xochitl sounds gorgeous and soft, and the meaning is so pretty. And the spelling is awesome. :) It looks very exotic to me. I think Xochitl and Ixchel would be perfect names for twin sisters. I know they aren’t from the same language, but in my mind, they seem to go together.

This name is very pretty. A lot of native names in Latin America are lovely. And it's a legit name starting with X - an added bonus!

Although BtN had listed this name as Spanish as well as Native American, the reader should note that its usage is largely confined to Mexico (which makes sense as it is a Nahuatl name, Nahuatl being one of the indigenous languages of Mexico). It is virtually not used in Spain at all. According to sources only 24 women in Spain are called Xochitl, including immigrants from other countries, meaning the name is exceedingly uncommon. Perhaps the editor of this website should list Xochitl under "Spanish (Latin American)" as that would more accurately describe its usage. [noted -ed]

At first I hated my name but now I am proud of it because it is a special name with a great significance.

It should be SHOH-chit'l in Nahuatl, but I've heard that it is commonly pronounced SOH-chee ZOH-chee, SOH-cheel, etc.

My second name is Xochilt (pronounced mostly Zo-shee-lt). Even though I find it pretty now, it wasn't always the case. It was pretty tough when I was younger. Both amognst Canadian and French kids, but also amongst Latin kids... It was hard to the point where I refused to use it and said only my first name!
