Name of the Day

There is a tiny graveyard in Bar Harbor, Maine that holds the graves of two women named Aquea and Aquaie. I have never seen these names before. I wonder whether they spring from the same inspiration as Wavey from The Shipping News.

Aquea S. Roberts
d. 1861
Bar Harbor, ME

Aquaie J. Alley
d. 1886
Bar Harbor, ME
