Subject: Tortilla as a female name

In the film Rue Cases Nègres (English title Sugar Cane Alley), one of the primary female characters is a girl named Tortilla.

As someone who isn't used to hearing "Tortilla" outside the context of Mexican food, I found her name very interesting. I was wondering what the origin of Tortilla as a female given name is. The character Tortilla in question is a poor black girl in 1930s Martinique.


Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.

A revolution without dancing is a revolution not worth having.
