The Aztecs were native American people who were predominant in northern Mexico during the early 16th century. They are believed to have originated from Aztlan, somewhere in the north of modern Mexico. The Aztecs had their own language called 'Nahuatl', which was a form of pictorial writing. Nowadays, there is a popular trend among parents to give unique names to their kids. Aztec names qualify as being unique since Nahuatl is an agglutinative language, which means, very long words can be formed by adding many different kinds of affixes to a root. This characteristic makes Aztec names a popular choice of uncommon names, especially for baby girls.
