Etymology

The origin and meaning of the name “Amuzgo” is unclear, and there are several theories. It seems likely that the name comes from one of the many Nahuatl languages (Uto-Aztecan language family): (1) One claim says that it comes from Nahuatl amoxco (Place of Books); (2) another is that it began as amuchco (where there is tin), composed of amuchitl (tin) and -co (in, at); (3) a third idea is that it comes from Nahuatl amochitl (where there is copper).
