SrImathE Ramanujaya namah:
Dear Sri Rajaram,
AzhwAr (a Tamil word) means "one who immerses himself..".
We too are AzhwArs (we have immersed ourselves in samsaaric affliction) and 
we run after sensual, transitory pleasures and run amuck on materialistic 
AzhwArs have immersed themselves deeply in the Bhagavth anubhavam, 
forgetting (rathar ignoring) all other vishayam..

Trust it answers your question.

Dear  Bhagavathas -

Could some one tell me how the name azhwar came to be associated with the 
azhwars ?

Yours humbly

Rajaram V.
