Lemon Drop and Aji Omnicolor names

I was wondering about the local names for these two peppers, whether Spanish, Quecha or whatever. A brief search turned up that Lemon Drop might also be known as Qellu Uchu, but that might also just be people mixing up aji limo. I'm assuming that both varieties came from somewhere English isn't the primary language, but if I'm wrong about that I'd like to hear that as well. Anybody know?
 
Aji Challuaruro looks suspiciously similar to Aji Omnicolor to me.
 
I seem to recall reading that Aji Omnicolor and Lemon Drop both originate from Peru.
 
I've seen some conflicting information that seems to be from people confusing limo, limon, and lemon, which is why I thought to ask around here.
