Trinidad is one of the islands in the Carribean, formerly known as the British West Indies (together with Tobago, Jamaica, Barbados, and the Bahamas). Today, it is the major part of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago.
According to T&T's official website http://www.gov.tt/about/history.html
the island got its name from Christopher Columbus who landed there in 1498 and took possession of it in the name of the Spanish Crown. Trinidad is Spanish for "Trinity."
Hope that helps
