Most likely is an anagram of the slang term Guaynaa. Long ago this was an English colony (other countries laid claim before this though) where they brought immigrants from ALL over the world to work the sugar cane fields.

People, even natives, have been brainwashed into thinking that so many words are made up. It's just not true. Many words come from other languages, obviously, "pon" it's a command verb from Spanish, but if you look at the food you might see the parallel in language. There is Indian foods (curry and roti), but also heavy influence from Chinese (lo mein, fried rice, Chinese cake which is identical to Chinese mooncakes), African(plantains), Spanish(salt fish and tomatoes, flan, beans and rice), many dishes are similar to even the Southern United States, like cook-up rice (pilau).

ALSO!!!! Old timey American dishes from the revolution, they served pepperpot soup, which is the national dish of Guyana. Pepperpot being a way the natives cooked and preserved meat, with cassareep. George Washington most likely ate pepperpot!!!!

There's a lot not being taught in History class. A lot that the teachers don't even know probably.... All in all Guyana was probably the NYC of the 1800s. Lots of different people, different languages, different backgrounds convinced it would be land of opportunity but it was just helping to keep capitalism afloat.
What do you mean you are from Guyana? It means I come from people from all over the world. I don't have time to teach you world history right now. Sorry.
