This creek was most probably named after the La Llorona myth. La Larona (the Weeping Woman) is the hispanic boogey-woman. She appears everywhere and the story is always the same: a woman drowns her child in a river/lake/ocean/pond/drainage ditch/bathtub and then spends all eternity wailing for her lost child and searching desperately for it. Many drownings are attributed to her influence as it is claimed if you get to close to where she is haunting/searching for her child, she will pull you in hopes that you are the child she is seeking.
