(a loanword from Spanish)
a personal name that combines a Spanish surname that was taken by indigenous nobles and a Nahua name (see attestations)
Don Diego de Alvarado Huanitzin was a son of Tezozomoctli Aculhnahuacatzintli (a lord of Tenochtitlan) and Tlacuilolxochtzin (daughter of Matlaccoatzin of Ecatepec). Don Diego had a son ("with a noblewoman") and the son was named don Miguel Oquiztzin. He had another son named don Miguel Chalchiuhquiyauhtzin, born in Ecatepec. Such a genealogy links pre-contact with Spanish colonial times. (central Mexico, seventeenth century)
