EtymologyEdit

From Classical Nahuatl cacahuatl (cocoa bean), with phonetical influence of alcahuete, hypothetically of Arabic origin (this influence is absent in cacahuate, the variant of the word used in Honduras and Mexico). Note that in Classical Nahuatl cacahuatl might refer to the cocoa bean, with tlālcacahuatl (literally earth cocoa bean) probably being the name for the peanut.
