Bartolomeo De Las Casas, a Dominican priest and the first Bishop of Chiapas of the western world shortened the name to "Española", and when Pietro Martyr d`Anghiera, a historian of all Spanish conquers detailed his account of the island in Latin, he translated the name as Hispaniola, because Anghiera`s literary work was translated into English and French in a short period of time, the name "Hispaniola" it has been the most frequently used term in English-speaking countries.
