The Spanish town called Kill Jews

A northern Spanish village will vote next week on whether or not to keep its current name "Castrillo Matajudios," which translates as "Castrillo Kill Jews." Hmmm. Tough call! 
Castrillo Matajudios will convene its 60 resident families at a town hall meeting next week to vote on the proposal, which Mayor Lorenzo Rodriguez submitted. He has suggested that the name be changed to Castrillo Mota de Judios, meaning "Castrillo Jews' Hill," which is believed to be the village's original name before it was changed during the Spanish inquisition.
