||Re: Tortilla as a female name by Array
I got to thinking of the etymology of the word, and found this on yourdictionary.com:
"American Spanish, diminutive of Spanish torta, cake, from Late Latin, a kind of bread."
Perhaps in its original context, the girl was being called something that seemed to a native speaker like "cupcake"?
