A branch of the Lizama family in Saipan and Guam is called Familian Pina'lek.

Pina'lek is a condition of dizziness, headache, upset stomach and heartburn caused by something eaten or drunk.

I have no idea how this family got this nickname, but chances are someone in the family long ago ate or drank something and had a very bad reaction, and was called Pina'lek, and then his or her descendants were as well.
