yesterday, I was at a Danza Azteca ceremony in San Diego. As part of the ceremony, a blessing of a newborn took place. Her name was "Cetzin," "retoño, frescura" (freshness, new leaves or a new shoot on a plant). In other words a rebirth of her "indigenous roots."
The mission of the H-Nahuatl network is to provide a simple medium where scholars interested in studying the Nahua or Nahuatl (Aztecs or Aztec language) can go to be in communication with others. The network will accept postings in English, Spanish, Nahuatl, and French. Historically the network has addressed issues relevant to understanding nuances of Nahuatl, the grammar and structure of the language. It also serves as a place where the general public can inquire about specific issues of the Nahua. Lastly, it provides a forum wherein scholars can announce their research plans and seek assistance from others in the field.
Based on my experience, names based on Nahuatl or other indigenous names are rarer in Mexico than amongst culturally and politically aware Chicanos/Mexican-Americans. Moctezuma Esparza IS AN EXAMPLE OF THIS.
People that have indigenous names in Mexico usually take them on as adults, like many Chicanos (including myself)...
I recently saw an interview on YouTube with someone named Xiuhtezcatl Martinez. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xiuhtezcatl_Martinez.
In my experience in north central Mexico, the most common Nahuatl names are Xóchitl, "flower" (for females, usually pronounced like 'sóchil' in Castilian), Citlalli, "star" (also for females, a variant form of Citlalin; both have the root citlal plus an absolutive suffix, -in or -li), and Cuauhtémoc, "descending eagle" (for males, after one of the last kings of the Mexica ). These three names are fairly common. Most women named Xóchitl are surprised when they hear their name pronounced in Nahuatl. I once met a Tláloc, but he is the only other one I have encountered.
Insofar someone does not know this already: the Digital Vatican Library has made the original of the Codex Borgia digital avaible for those who are interested. Beautiful and very sharp images with much more detail then for exemple the Graz facsimile. The direct link is:
