Map of the US with Arizona in red

Etymology[edit]

Uncertain. Possibly from O'odham alĭ ṣonak (literally small spring) (traditionally through the Spanish intermediary form Arizonac; compare modern Arizona), a name initially applied to an area around a silver-mining camp in Sonora.[1][2]

Alternatively, perhaps from Basque haritz ona (literally good oak), as the area many Basque herders, and a descendant of them established the ranchería of Arizona (circa 1735) in Sonora.[3][4][5]

Suggestions of derivation from arizuma, supposedly a Nahuatl word meaning "silver-bearing", are considered implausible,[4] and derivation from Spanish árida zona (literally dry zone) is considered a folk etymology.[6]
