Dolores Barrios (Orthon the Venusian?)

Dolores means "sorrows", taken from the Spanish title of the Virgin Mary MarĂ­a de los Dolores, meaning "Mary of Sorrows".
Barrios, de Barrios, Barrio or Berrios is a surname of Basque* origin.

The name may refer to:

Barrio (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈbarjo]) is a Spanish word meaning district or neighborhood.

Spanish: habitational name from any of the numerous places named with Spanish barrio ‘outlying suburb’ (especially an impoverished one), ‘slum’, from Arabic barr ‘suburb’, ‘dependent village’.
Dolores Barrios can be translated as:

sorrows of the district
sorrows of the neighbourhood
sorrows of the outlying suburb
sorrows of the slum
sorrows of the dependent village

- A reference to the suffering on planet Earth perhaps.

Adamski described Orthon as incredibly compassionate and concerned for the fate of our world, so any of those would be a fitting name for such a being to take.

( * That the name Dolores is also of Basque origin is interesting, in that a lot of mystery surrounds the genetic ancestry of the culture. Also the famous Hair of the Alien DNA analysis case in which an Australian man who claimed to have been raped by two female interdimensional entities - one of whom was blonde - produced DNA results from a recovered hair sample that showed extremely rare, spliced mitochondrial DNA of Basque origin.)
