Etymology[edit]

Uncertain. Two very different origins have been proposed:

  • From Basque aritz ona (good oak), from aritz (oak) + ona (good).
  • From O'odham alĭ ṣonak (small spring), from alĭ (small) + ṣonak (spring).

The claim that it comes from Spanish árida (dry) + zona (zone) is folk etymology.
