I believe the answer to your question will come from an understanding of the Navaho or Yavapai Indian languages. There are so many city names derived from these words.
Dinnehotso, Vamori, Tonopah for 3 examples out of 100.
The name Tonopah derives from the Western Apache Tú Nohwá, meaning "Water For Us" or "Water For You".
(wikiencyclopedia, Tonopah, AZ)
