Meaning & History

Derived from Nahuatl itztli meaning "obsidian, obsidian knife" and pāpālōtl "butterfly". This name has been translated as "clawed butterfly", perhaps in effect equal to "bat". In Aztec mythology, Ītzpāpālōtl was a skeletal warrior goddess of infant mortality and women who die in childbirth.
