Yareli: baby girl name meaning and popularity


Likely derived from the Arabic name Yara, meaning "butterfly" - although some sources say it may be a Native American word for "lady of the water." Either will be fitting, as your little Yareli will hang around outside all day and then fill the bathtub to the brim like she's the one paying the water bill.
