Arizona state name

There is no consensus among historians about the origin of the name of the state of Arizona.

According to one version, the word “Arizona” comes from the Aztec word “arizuma” distorted by the Spaniards, meaning “bringing silver” or “source of silver”. Often this word is also explained simply as “source”.

According to another popular version, the name “Arizona” comes from the language of the Tohono-Oodham and Pima Indians, who still live in Arizona today. This name is translated as “small spring”.

There are also versions about the origin of the name of the state of Arizona from the Basque language, from the expression aritz ona (good oak) or from the Spanish zona arida (“dry territory”).
