Meaning of Freckle
Freckles, sometimes called ephelis, are clusters of concentrated melanin which are most often visible on people with a fair complexion. Freckles do not have an increased number of melanin-producing cells (melanocytes), but instead have cells that overproduce melanin granules changing the coloration of the skin (increased number of melanosomes). This also causes the different skin tones among humans, but contrasts with lentigines and moles. - See link


Freckle in Spanish is Peca
Efélide (del griego ephēlid- "grano, peca") es una mancha pequeña de color marrón claro de melanina que aparece sobre la piel clara expuesta al sol, a la que oscurece, al contrario de lo que ocurre con el lentigo simple. Generalmente se usa en plural "efélides". El término coloquial es "pecas".1 - See link
