Jayuya, actually spelled Hallulla?[edit]

I have reason to believe that, while the name "Jayuya" refers to a native chief, the word is not a proper name. I strongly believe it was a nickname. The chief's name may be lost in time. Chances are the Spaniards actually made fun of his haircut, which resembled a "hallulla," a roundish bread popular in Spain at the time. Therefore, the name would actually be derived from Hebrew... not from Taino. (talk) 17:38, 21 January 2016 (UTC)
