  Etymology of generic noun  
Named for the Maya Chol dialect word wajpam which means ‘to have mud on one’s face’, in combination with the old cichlid genus name Heros (meaning hero), referring to the substratum sifting feeding strategy during which mouth and lips are inserted into soft substrates (hence mud on the face).
