a people inhabiting the Mariana Islands.
the Austronesian language of the Chamorro.

indigenous people of Guam and the Marianas Islands, from Spanish Chamorro, literally “shorn, shaven, bald.” Supposedly because the men shaved their heads, but the name also has been connected to native Chamoru, said to mean “noble,” so perhaps Chamorro is a Spanish folk etymology.
