Day- surnames of Carcar
The fourth alphabetical surname group in Carcar, the Day- surnames, were mostly to be found in the Montepase and Bacsiji areas. Maybe the authorities (priest, gobernadorcillo, cabezas) handed out these surnames to people residing there, like the Bar- and C- surnames appeared to have been distributed to Cogon residents and of present-day Guadalupe, and the Al- in Latid and Guadalupe areas.
Through the years, these surnames underwent spelling changes and these have resulted in the surnames concerned to be spelled quite differently at present, and as a further result, pronounced differently from what we would have had with the old spellings.
These would be the Dayabilos, Dayacamus, Dayalimas and Dayapira family names of 160 years ago but which are Diabelos (djabelos), Diacamus (djacamus), Dialimas (djalimas), Diapera (djapira) today.
Non-family names but new Day- appellations now attached to people of all surnames all over Carcar these days are Dayabetic and Dayalisis.
The first priest born in Carcar was Jacinto Alcoseba Dayagro (b. 1855). This information was taken from a post-notation on his baptismal record that said primer sacerdote. Other notable early Day- personalities in Carcar were the gobernadorcillo Mariano Dayondon and cabezas Miguel de los Angeles (also of the Dayondon family), Cornelio Dayonot and Domingo Daytec.
