The name geoduck is derived from a Lushootseed (Nisqually) word gʷídəq either a word composed of a first element of unknown meaning and əq meaning "genitals" (referring to the shape of the clam), or a phrase meaning "dig deep", or perhaps both, as a double entendre.

So we know how it got the pronunciation. What we don't know is how it got the stupid spelling.

This is an aquadog.
