La donya should probably be La Doña (The Lady, The Misstress) which is the female for Don (Gentleman, Mister). The word "dos" is nothing but the number TWO, and doesn't make sense, because "two ladies" would be equivalent to "dos Doñas" but never "dos la doña".

By the way, Doña is generally used to indicate respect (landladies, personalities, artists, old people).

If you have further information please post it here. Un abrazo
