About the Quiaoit surname

Quiaoit Clan originated in Batac, Ilocos Norte Philippines. This last name inception's took place during the Spanish era. Spanish law forced the natives to have and register last names which they did not have at that time.(The Claveria Decree 1849) As either a joke or an act of rebellion, the first Quiaoit went outside and found two birds of different species fighting. One bird screeched "keow keow" the other "weet weet". He decided to use the sounds they made to turn this last name.
