Town Names   by A. L. Kroeber

It is clear from the appended list that in spite of abundant intercourse between the Yurok and Hupa, place names were not adopted into a foreign language, but were made over by these tribes.  Sometimes they were translated.  Thus the Yurok and Hupa names for Weitspus both refer to confluence, for Nohtskum to a nose of rock, for Serper to a prairie, for Wohkel to pepperwoods.  Other places seem to have been descriptively named by the Hupa, without reference to the significance of their Yurok names.  Thus they call four villages after the pepperwood, tunchwin, the Yurok only one.
