Meaning & History

From the very name of the mythical homeland of the Aztec peoples. Etymology uncertain, often said to mean "place of the herons", from Nahuatl aztatl "heron, snowy egret" and the locative suffix -tlan, though this doesn’t fit Nahuatl morphology. Other suggested meanings include "place of eagles", "place of whiteness", "place of wings", and "place near the tools".
