Etymology
Often said to come from Nahu. xocolatl (e.g. American Heritage Dictionary 2000) or chocolatl (e.g. dictionary.com 2006), which would be derived from xococ, bitter, and atl, water, (with an irregular change of x to ch). Dakin and Wichmann (2000) propose that the chocol- element refers to a special wooden stick used to prepare chocolate.

However, the form xocolatl is not directly attested, and chocolatl does not appear in Nahuatl until the mid-18th century, which may indicate another origin. The word may come instead from a Mayan. language.

In any case, the word chocolate reached English via S..
