AZTECS OR MEXICAS?

In the Nahuatl dialect, the origin of the person when you substitute the last syllable of the Name of the town with técatl which means person, méxicatl derived from mecitl(metl-cactus, citl-hare), name of a primitive Aztec god according to some historians, first he was a soldier and then was a very well respected and obeyed priest. The name meant person raised in the leaf of a cactus. His vassals decided to call themselves Mexica, plural

Of mexicatl that means a Mexican, the mythical place from where the Mexicas departed, guided by the Huitziton the soldier, in the search of another place where to inhabit, it was called Aztlan. According to some it means place of whiteness, according to others, it means place of the herons. Whoever suggests the second option is the correct one, they locate the legendary place in the middle of a lagoon. The word Aztec is the plural of Aztecatl, which meant inhabitant of Aztlan, Aztecs are the ones that left Aztlan; Mexicas are the ones that arrived to the Texcoco Lake guided by Mecitl. The truth is that both were co-founders of the great Tenochtitlan, metropolis of the Aztec empire.
