Sixtus was a Roman name, a corruption of the Greek name "Ξυστος," meaning "polished," and originally Latinized "Xystus." In its Spanish form Sixto it is still used as a personal name. It is not to be confused with the common Roman praenomen "Sextus," meaning "sixth," though not necessarily denoting a sixth child.
