ASK A QUESTION What does the name San De Fuca mean?
There is a small bay located close to Whidbey Island in Wasington State. This bay is named "San De Fuca" What does that name mean in English....?
I know the words San means saint, and the word De means of, but what does the word Spanish word "Fuca" mean in English?
THanks and GOD Bless. David.
I live nearby and it is actually called 'San Juan de Fuca' and as stated, named for an explorer.
Hi David. "Fuca" is not in the official Spanish dictionary, and I couldn't find any translation online. I'm guessing is a name.
Sorry that I couldn't be of more help.
