Arawakan help?

I've been trying to give a character a Taino name, but the only resources I can find list national heroes and historically important caciques. I could name my character after one of these people, because they're national heroes, and real life people do name their kids after important people in history- but I'd rather find something that better suits the character than the first thing that pops up when researching Caribbean history.

Also because most of these big, famous caciques had bays and islands named after them, which makes me feel like instead of actually doing work, I just went to a travel agency and collected brochures for Island Cruises.

Any suggestions??
