One of the proposals raised and promoted by the mayor is the possibility of changing the name from "Castrillo Matajudios" to "Castrillo Mota de Judios", "Castrillo Jews' Hill."
According to mayor Lorenzo Rodriguez, "Castrillo Mota de Judios" was the village's original name, prior to the Spanish Inquisition.
