It is in this period that the deity is known to have been named "Quetzalcoatl" by his Nahua followers. In the Maya area he was approximately equivalent to Kukulcan and Gukumatz , names that also roughly translate as "feathered serpent" in different Mayan languages. A prominent symbol of the priests of Quetzalcoatl was a symbol known in Nahuatl as a "ehecaicozcatl" which translates in to English as a "wind jewel. In codex illustrations depicting Quetzalcoatl and Xolotl they are both depicted wearing an ehecaicozcatl around each of their necks.

Modern scholars debate whether the Aztec narratives of Toltec history should be given credence as descriptions of actual historical events. While all scholars acknowledge that there is a large mythological part of the narrative, some maintain that by using a critical comparative method some level of historicity can be salvaged from the sources. Others maintain that continued analysis of the narratives as sources of actual history is futile and hinders access to actual knowledge of the culture of Tula de Allende. Researchers are yet to reach a consensus in regards to the degree or direction of influence between these two sites. Some archaeologists, such as Richard Diehl , argue for the existence of a Toltec archaeological horizon characterized by certain stylistic traits associated with Tula, Hidalgo and extending to other cultures and polities in Mesoamerica.
