The name of the man known to history as Juan de Fuca is the source of some confusion. While "Juan de Fuca" is clearly a Spanish rendering of "Ioánnis Phokás" (Gr: Ιωάννης Φωκάς), some sources cite "Apóstolos Valeriános" (Gr:
Βαλεριάνος) as his "real" name. It is possible that Phokás was baptized "Apóstolos" and later adopted the name Ioánnis/Juan (i.e., John) because "" is not much used as a name in Spanish. Given that Fokás/Fuca was the family name borne by the seafarer's father and grandfather, Valeriános is likely to be a nickname used on the island which would have been quite meaningless in the Spanish Empire.
