"In the 17th Century, Peter Wallace, a daring Scotch buccaneer found a river entirely protected by a series of cayes and reefs, and made it his place of refuge from the Spaniards. The followers of Wallace gave his name to the river on whose bank they established themselves. Due to improper pronunciation by the Spaniards, the name Wallace or Willis deteriorated to Wallix, Valis, Balis, and finally to Belize in 1790."
