Origin of the name Yatziri:

Yatziri is a modern name with several suggested origins. Foremost, many linguists believe that Yatziri is an anagram of the name Yaritzi. This name is a less common spelling of Yaretzi. Linguists have suggested that Yaretzi derives from the Nahuatl (Aztec) word yōllōtl (meaning “heart” or “beloved”) combined with the suffix -istli or -tzi. As a result, the name would mean “always loved” or “eternally” loved.

In the Tupi language, Yatziri is also an anagram of Yaritzi, but this name is the short form of Yaritza (meaning “lady of the water”). The name combines the Tupi elements y (meaning “water”) and îara (meaning “lady” or “mistress”). This term also refers to the “mistress of the moon” found in multiple South American legends.

Finally, some linguists believe that Yatziri is simply a contraction of the Nahuatl word yohualahuachtli (meaning “morning dew” or “dewdrop”). For this meaning, the most common alternative spelling is Jatziri.
