Aberdeen & Hoquiam, WA Professional Review and Guide
"Aberdeen was named after a city in Scotland. The Gaelic word means “the meeting of two rivers,” which is appropriate for this Washington town established at the confluence of the Chehalis (chuh-hay-lis) and Wishkah (wish-kah) rivers. The name Hoquiam (hoh-kwee-uhm) derives from the Indian term houiumpts, meaning “hungry for wood,” which referred to the abundance of driftwood at the mouth of the Hoquiam River.
