meaning of "lomas"

New restaurant in town called "Lomas del Sol" I find only the word loma in dictionaries meaning "hill or knoll." Is Lomas correct? Does this mean Hills of the Sun? Thanks.

Yes, I'd say that's a fairly accurate translation, it could also be "Sunny Hills" or something similar.

Oh, and welcome

Maybe, but I wouldn't count on it.

"lo más" is used like, for example in: "lo más que puedes" - as much as you can. I think probably hills of the sun is a pretty on-target translation.

Thanks for the quick responses. You solved a mystery in central Illinois and settled a debate or two!

In Spain, it's the typical name for a residential district or an old people's home
