Trivia: Aztec and The Art of Naming a Child

Aztec emperor Montezuma had a nephew named Cuitlahuac, which meant "plenty of poo" or "dry excrement." And here I am thinking that people today give their kids weird names....

You are wrong. His real name is Cuautlahuac "who cares". And e became emperor after the death of moctecuhzoma.
There was a town called Cuitlahuac, but "plenty of poo" or “dry excrement” are only a meaning, out of context. Another meaning based on the ground of the town is
"new vegetation," "gold water or "lake vegetation landscape".

But... what can say a fckng american without hisory. The real USA meaning is death, hunger, terror. You are the worst empire in history. All world hate you because steal everything you can...

@ Ris: It does! the blasted thing is basically corn fungus which sounds pretty disgusting but isn't that bad when cooked properly.

Poor Cuitlahuac :(

That's funny... I think there's a type of Mexican food called "Cuitlacoche," which I've heard translated to mean, "Corn Smut."
