Jamaica History & Culture

The neighborhood was named Yameco, a corruption of the word yamecah, meaning “beaver”, in the language spoken by the Lenape, the Native Americans who lived in the area at the time of first European contact. The liquid “y” sound of English is spelled with a “j” in Dutch, the language of the first people to write about the area; the English retained this Dutch spelling, but, after repeated reading and speaking of “Jamaica”, slowly replaced the liquid sound with the hard “j” of the English pronunciation of the name today. (In the Caribbean, the aboriginal Arawaks named their island Xaymaca, “land of wood and water”, and the “x” spelling in Spanish was in time transformed to the hard “j” of the modern English name, “Jamaica”.)
