Re: Nahuatl Fiction / ficción NahuatlI am curious about the alternate meanings for Quetzalcoatl.
1) plumed serpent
2) blue-green bird serpent
are there others?

What about Precious Serpent -- is precious ever an alternate meaning for Quetzal?
I've heard it said so. To complicate matters, iirc, coatl may also mean "twin."
