Meaning:Aztec Earth goddess
For the green-thumbed baby whose beauty knows no bounds, Atlatonan is a natural choice. A feminine name of Aztec origin, Atlatonan is borne by the Aztec goddess of the Earth. In Mexica mythology, Atlatonan is one of the four wives of Tezcatlipoca—a revered god associated with many concepts, such as the night sky and jaguars. Atlatonan’s domain is tricky to pin down, with ancient sources also describing her as a goddess of coastlines, water, and the ill and maimed. Some even suggest Atlatonan is a form of the mother goddess Coatlicue. With mystery and ancient divinity to back its charm, baby Atlatonan can proudly keep this distinct appellation alive.
