Etymology & Historical Origin - Nayeli

Nayeli means ‘I love you’ in the Zapotec language. The Zapotec people are indigenous to Mexico and are now mainly concentrated in the southwestern area of Mexico (in the state Oaxaca) against the Pacific Ocean and number close to one million in the present day (with about 100,000 in the United States). Prior to the discovery of the Americas and subsequent settlement of Western Europeans, the Zapotec society had been one of the most highly developed. Present day native Zapotec language speakers number around half a million. Nayeli is not ranked in Mexico as a given name.

Popularity of the Name Nayeli

Nayeli is a name that appears to be used mainly in the United States. It first appeared on the female naming charts in 1993 and very quickly ascended up to position #175 in 2001. In that year, the name was highly ranked in the states of California, New Mexico and Texas. All of these states have two things in common. One, they are Mexican Border States; and two, they have a high population of Mexican-Americans. So it’s not surprising that Nayeli, a name with indigenous Mexican origins, became popular. The name had meteoric success very quickly, suggesting it was merely a fleeting fad. Of course, everyone loves the meaning of this name for their children. It’s almost too perfect! However, the name has experienced deterioration in usage over the past 10 years down to lower levels of moderation. Do you ‘love’ this name? It’s kind of hard not to.
