Nahuatl unisex name referring to the first daysign in the tonalpohualli, or Aztec day-count. It is possible that pre-Colombian civilisations may have chosen to name their children after the daysign under which they were born. Cipactli means "crocodile", and is sometimes cited as a representation of the primeval material of the universe.
