NARRAGUAGUS:  We are told that the name Narraguagus is an Indian name meaning "wide and shallow" which certainly applies to our river, except at flood time. The book "Geographical Names of New Brunswick - Rayburn" states that Narraguagus was formerly the name of present day Penobsquis, NB. There is a Guagus stream that flows south into Lower North Branch Little Southwest Miramichi River. Derived from Micmac "Gwaagus", possibly meaning "rough stream".
