29297: Reply RE: 29279: Simidor (comment): The name Ayiti (Haiti) (fwd)

From: thor burnham <thorald_mb@hotmail.com>

Expanding on Simidor's poetic intervention, David Geggus makes a compelling argument concerning the naming of Haiti while providing a dense overview of its most likely origins. He uses both earlier French and Spanish sources. It's in his final chapter of his very excellent edited volume_Haitian Revolutionary Studies_

I believe it is a (slightly revised?) version of his 1997 article of the same title that appeared in_The New West Indian Guide_ in 1997.
