What does Mattachine mean?

House of Mattachine have gotten its name from the civil rights movement that pre-dated Stonewall with decades, called the Mattachine Society.
The Mattachine Society used so-called harlequin diamonds as their emblem. The design consisted of four diamonds arranged in a pattern to form a larger diamond.
But the name has an even older history then that.
