Meaning & History
Possibly from the Nahuatl word meaning "valley of happy waters". Another theory suggests it is a distant derivation of Tarshish, meaning "trading post".A bearer of this name is Orizoba Spence who was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for "Gallantry in Action" during "The Campaign of the Rocky Mesa" in 1870.
