TODAY IS THE FEAST OF OUR LADY OF SORROWS
Dolor is Spanish for "pain" but has also been used to mean spiritual "sorrow." Dolores means "sorrows." Our Lady of Sorrows. So many Chamorro girls were baptized with the name Dolores. Why the plural? Seven sorrows, nai. Not just one.
Nicknames for Dolores are Lole', but that sounds too much like an elderly lady's nickname, so Loling was another favorite pet name for Dolores. Then...just to complicate things...Loling sometimes becomes Ling.
Some ladies, following Americanized tastes, become Lolly rather than Lole' or Loling.
