Etymology & Historical Origin of the Baby Name Yareli

Yareli is a female given name used within the Spanish-speaking populations of North and South America; however, it appears to have originated from some other Native American language. We have been unable to find the root origin of Yareli but some believe it to be an elaboration of a Brazilian name “Yara” from a native word for “lady of the water”. Yareli is most popular in Mexico and among Spanish-speakers in California. Adding currency to this name is an accomplished and talented Mexican-American actress Yareli Arizmendi who is notable for her starring role in the 2004 movie “A Day Without a Mexican” (which she also co-wrote).

Popularity

OF THE GIRL NAME YARELI

Yareli first appeared on the American female naming charts in 2002 so this is a new name. It’s unclear what prompted her sudden appearance on the charts but she has made a notable climb from complete obscurity to relative low-moderate usage. This unusual name has uncertain origins based off our research so anyone who knows what’s up with its meaning and sudden popularity is free to comment. Yareli appears to be leveling off in usage, so we don’t expect her to be bestowed upon more than 500 or 600 babies per year in the future. This name seems to be restricted to Mexican-Americans in the United States. Yareli is quite original and very pretty.
