another one of my favorite birds with beautiful, shimmery green feathers. This name can also be short for Quetzalcoatl, an Aztec god's name which means "feather-snake.' Plus, names with Q's are always cool

Quetzal comes from the Nahuatl language quetzalli, which means "large brilliant tail feather." It refers to the bird species Pharomachrus mocino, the national bird of Guatemala. Named for the bird, the Quetzal is also the unit of currency in Guatemala.
