According to additional information provided on 12/2011 by Richard Carrico, a member of the E.H. Davis Project Scholar Advisory Committee: The name Hilmeup and its many variations derived from Hilmiarp, a large Eastern Diegueno clan that extended from Manzanita to Coyotes Wells on the east, south into Baja California and west towards Campo (Gifford 1918). The name means ‘To know about the moons.’
