I met a woman with a first name of Xochitl (flower?) and a Spanish last name, but if I have it right, Nauioceotl (Huitzilopochtli?)?

Nahuatl => I don't have any idea about the word Naui, but oceotl is probablby a jaguar, and Huitzilopochtli (Hummingbird warrior?) was an Aztec god that was leader of the Aztec/Mexica wanderings, roughly a Moses. One of his deeds was to cut his sister into pieces and throw the parts down a hill or mountain, thus the floor image of her several parts at the bottom of the steps at the main sacrificial temple in Tenochtitlan - the priests would throw the bodies of the newly dispatched down the steps and they would land on or near the image.

I would put money up saying it's not his birth name. I can understand something like Cauahtemoc Cardenas Solorzano, but to be fully named in Nahuatl words like "N" would be even more oddball than someone bearing a full name of some sort from the old Norse or Saxon legends.
