Compound Glyph

Glyph or Iconographic Image Description: 

This black-line drawing of the compound glyph for the personal name Xochitleuh (attested here as male) has two main elements. Most prominent is a flower, upright and with three prominent petals, plus a base. Surrounding the flower are small, squiggly lines which may related to a fever-like heat coming off the flame (tletl)--?

Added Analysis: 

The -uh ending for tletl suggests possession. So, it may refer to a perceived heat of the flower. This syllable is not shown visually.
