Your correct, Chaco is a Spanish word/name. The Spanish named the people (taotao tano) "chamorro" after a Spanish King who was bald. The Spanish reported in their journals, when they landed most of the native men shaved their heads leaving a small patch of hair on top. Thus naming the people in honor of one of their kings.
