thanks aasiyah
well i do know, but puppet dictator has beaten me to it his answer is spot on and deserves the ten points

Aston Villa's first match was against the local Aston Brook St Mary's Rugby team. As a condition of the match, the Villa side had to agree to play the first half under rugby rules and the second half under football rules.[11] Villa quickly became one of the best teams in the Midlands, winning their first honour, the Birmingham Senior Cup in 1880, under the captaincy of Scotsman George Ramsay.

I've always assumed that the "Villa" is derived from Villa Park's proximity to Aston Hall (it's actually sited in what used to be the Hall's grounds).

Villa stand for a nice house hotel look alike…but in aston villa,villa stand for a hooker house

Villa usually refers to a large house that is very expansive. I believe that the word's origin is Latin. You know what they like to say now; "Not in our House"!

It's their home field…Villa is Spanish for "Home". I would say…home.

Theyre all a bunch of villans

it is a VILLAge in Birmingham
