According to some recollections, the word Loxahatchee is a translation of the original Indian name which was Looch-a-hatchee - looch meaning fool and hatchee meaning creek. When written, “och” is two semi circles meeting in the middle, similar to an “x” - loahatchee. The Indian translation for lox is turtle. So, when Loxahatchee was written on maps it was translated as turtle’s creek.
