There is a common name that is the Spanish peyote, which is derived from the word "peyotl" in the ancient Nahuatlan language (ancient Indian language Or local tribes in Mexico a long time ago), but some linguists say that it is a word from the language of the Aztec tribe. The word "pepyoni" means to excite or the word "pepeyon" that means to activate. Both words have similar meanings.
