The origin of the city's name is obscure: although the Spanish name of the place means "walnuts", there are no walnut trees to be found in the area. The local pronunciation is /noʷales/, which is the same as the indigenous pronunciation of nopales, meaning "prickly pear pads". The city is known in O'odham (Papago) (a nearby Native American tribal language) as No-wa:l.

The Santa Cruz County Historical Courthouse on Morley Street/Court Street has the statue of Lady Justice on top of the building. Lady Justice is supposed to have a blindfold on holding the scales of justice. This symbolizes that justice is blind. The Nogales version of Lady Justice is not wearing a blindfold.
The name "Nogales" is derived from the Spanish word for "Walnut" or "Walnut tree." It refers to the large stands of walnut trees that once stood in the mountain pass where Nogales is located.
Nogales, Arizona was the filming location for the motion picture version of the musical "Oklahoma" (1955). Nogales was chosen because the it looked more like turn-of-the-century Oklahoma (when the musical is set) more than anywhere in Oklahoma did at that time. Oklahoma itself had apparently become far too developed by 1955. Nogales, Arizona was made an "honorary" part of the state of Oklahoma for the duration of the film shoot by order of the governor of Arizona.
Nogales was also known as Isaacson. In 1880, Russian immigrant Jacob Isaacson built a trading post at present-day Nogales. The U.S. Postal Service opened the Isaacson Post Office but renamed it to Nogales in 1883.
