Eight Deer was the only Mixtec king ever to unite kingdoms of the three Mixtec areas: Tilantongo in the Mixteca Alta area with Teozacualco of the Mixteca Baja area and Tututepec of the coastal Mixteca area.

His reputation as a great ruler has given him a legendary status among the Mixtecs; some aspects of his life story as it is told in the pictographic codices seem to merge with myth. Furthermore, actual knowledge of his life is hindered by the lack of complete understanding of the Mixtec codices, and although the study of the codices has advanced much over the past 20 years, it is still difficult to achieve a definitive interpretation of their narrative. The narrative, as it is currently understood, is a tragic story of a man who achieves greatness but falls victim to his own hunger for power. The above biography of 8 Deer is based on the codex's interpretation by Mixtec specialist John Pohl.[7]

There was a Mayan lord named smoking frog iirc

Lots of Mayan names have numbers in them though, they were a very numerology and astrology centered culture

Until this thread I would have thought a Mixtec was a brand of blender.

Is there an online generator for badass Mixtec names? Like you enter your name/birthday and it spits out a hardcore Mixtec name? Cuz if not, there should be.
