Regarding Calle Guatemuz. "Guatemuz" was how the Spanish conquistadors attempted to pronounce the name of Cuauhtémoc, the last tlatoani, or king, of the Mexicas. After the fall of Tenochtitlan, he was captured and tortured, presumably so that he would tell the Spanish the location of gold and other valuables. Cortés eventually killed Cuauhtémoc by hanging on the way to Honduras in 1525.
