Thank you all for your informative responses re the Quetzalcoatl and
Nahualli question.  This is a fascinating language and this list great.  I
am still unclear as to whether an alternate Meaning for Quetzalcoatl is:

1) Plumed Serpent
2) Quetzal Serpent
3) Precious Twin

What about:
1) Precious Serpent
2) Quetzal / Plumed Twin ??
3) or others.
