Commentary

Etymology

Josefina = derived from Hebrew, meaning "God shall add", possibly a reference to her having many descendents (source: behindthename.com).

Calderon = This is one of those occupational surnames, like Potter. The word originally described someone who made large cooking pots. Calderon sounds similar to "cauldron" and Cauldron is an English version of the name, according to The Internet Surname Database.

Notes

Folk healing is an important part of Mexico's culture and history. -BB
