We can ask : when and why he changed his name? And before, have indeed changed name or the first of them,
Santa , it was not a spurious news , bad reading, aired in writing? In writing we say , not orality , because it is difficult to explain (and , of course, goes against the "laws" of place names ) that change of name in a purely referential territory outside any anthropic use at least in those days.
Maybe the name of Santa Clara is the first European community ( possibly Italian ) who came to its shores in the fourteenth century , either by dedication to the Italian saint , fellow San Francisco , founder of the Poor Clares , and whose popularity give I was then at the zenith , having been canonized shortly before or because well the boat they were traveling in was called . And renaming that suffered was due to geographical reasons. Since then , the name of Clara Mountain fits well with what the eyes see when they look this island , which is nothing but a pure volcano of 256 m . high, yes, the yellow and clear their tuffs . Precisely that is the visual aspect that should be at the origin of its name , which Abréu Torriani and put on the lips of issuing Bethencourt (and we do not find in Le canarien ) . Again Torriani again cites verses of Torquato Tasso, this time from the Jerusalem Delivered , to illustrate this view of Clara Mountain (1978 : 33).
