Nahuatl is from a root variously translated as 'audible, clear,
intelligible, speaking clearly' (the last of which gave rise to my
own Feorran meaning the same'.)  The speakers of Nahuatl whom most
people know as Aztecs, called themselves "Mexihca" [meSi?ka] (hence
Mexico) of unknown etymology.  Aztec itself means people from Aztlan,
the land of the seven caves somewhere to the north.  Thus most of the
Nahuatl speaking peoples of the Valle Central were Aztecs including some
who were enemies of the Mexihca.
