Mexico: a word, many meanings

Some authors say that the name Tenochtitlán, can also be derived from Tenochtli, cactus of hard pears with thorns, for its part, the etymology of Mexico has been a subject for discussion for some centuries. Francisco Javier Clavijero has already pointed out the following meanings of the word: meztli meaning moon, due to the fact that the Aztecs saw the moon reflected in the lake, as predicted by the oracle; The name of xiote or center of the maguey, Mextli or Huitzilopochtli, that according to Clavijero is like Mars astrologically for the Mexicas.
In this century, Jacques Soustelle, says the following versions:

Some think that the eagle standing on a nopal, is the symbol of mexitl; Others look for the root of the word meztli, the moon and the word xictli, navel or center, Mexico would be according to this author something like the city in the middle of the moon and that was in effect the meaning of Metzutlapan, ancient name of Texcoco.
