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.
