Denominations oftentimes referred to as "branches" of Palo include Mayombe (or Mallombe), Monte, Briyumba (or Brillumba), and Kimbisa.

The word "palo" ("stick" in Spanish) was applied to the religion in Cuba due to the use of wooden sticks in the preparation of altars, which were also called "la Nganga", "el caldero", "nkisi" or "la prenda". Priests of Palo are known as "Paleros", "Tatas (men)", "Yayas (women)" or "Nganguleros". Initiates are known as "ngueyos" or "pino nuevo".
