Did You Know?
The Aztecs got their name from the Westerners who named them after the place that they lived in during the twelfth century - Aztlan. They used to originally refer to themselves as Mexica, which is where the name "Mexico" originated from.
The term "Aztec" refers to the peoples belonging to the ethnic groups of Central Mexico, especially the ones who spoke the Nahuatl language, during the 14th to 16th century. Today, the language is spoken by 1.5% of the Mexican population, mostly in the mountainous areas of Central Mexico. Due to the quest of choosing a unique name for one's baby, Aztec names are gaining rapid popularity. And these names are indeed unique. Not only do these names sound different, they also have a very unique meaning attached to them, which makes them even more special.
