Do you know that "Atlantis" is an aztec word? atl-antis. atl=water. how did Plato get the word?

antis i think means copper. so perhaps the land of Atlantis had contact with aztec ancestors or were in the area or something. makes you wonder. Plato wrote that Orachalcum was a highly valued metal in Atlantis and it glowed red. kinda like copper.
Update: Pol: can you break down the word for me? atla(nti)s. which part says island. nti?
