Additional Information:

This last name's inception took place during Spanish rule in the Philippines. Spanish law forced the natives to have and register last names, which they did not have at the time. As either a joke or an act of rebellion, the first Quiaoit went outside and found two birds of different species fighting. One bird screeched "Keow Keow"; the other "Weet Weet". He decided to use the sounds they made to form his last name. Also, may have used French phonetics to spell the name as an additional stab at the Spanish.
