Etymology[edit]

Unknown. One theory is that it was coined by Spanish colonists based upon the name of the local chief at that time, Nahuatl Nicarao (Nicarao) + agua (water). Another is that it may have meant ‘surrounded by water’ in an indigenous language. (This could either be a reference to its two large freshwater lakes, Lake Nicaragua and Lake Managua, or to the fact that it bounded on the east and the west by oceans.)
