When it comes to selecting a baby name, it’s always wise to go back to the basics. The Aztecs might be dead long ago, but they are alive with us in several ways, including being a rich source of unique names for your child.

Aztecs people were ethnic groups found in Northern Mexico in the 16th century. They are believed to have been originated from Aztlan, a mythological place for the Nahuatl speakers. The term Aztecs also referred to the people of Tenochtitlan, which is now the Mexico City. It was in Tenochtitlan; the Aztec Triple Alliance was built upon raised islets in Texcoco lake. This was the first instance of artificial islands. The capital flourished soon and was soon inhabited by over 200,000 inhabitants. The inhabitants were divided into several strata, like the nobles, rules, commoners and slaves.

The Aztec people had complex and rich mythological and religious traditions. Much of their history and culture can be known through the archaeological evidence found in the excavations of the Templo Mayor in Mexico.
