Xochipilli was the god of love, games, beauty, dance, flowers, maize, and song in Aztec mythology. His name contains the Nahuatl words xochitl (“flower”) and pilli (either “prince” or “child”), and hence means “flower prince”. He is also referred to as Macuilxochitl, which means “five flowers”.
His wife was Mayahuel and his twin sister was Xochiquetzal. As one of the gods responsible for fertility and agricultural produce, he was associated with Tlaloc, god of rains, and Cinteotl, god of maize.
