Etymology

The etymology of the word Popelogan has been debated greatly over the years. One theory is that the word derives from the Maliseet simply describing "a place to stop at, where one touches." According to the linguist Rand, the word was of Mi'kmaq origin and meant "long narrow stone." According to a traveler in the area in the late nineteenth century, a Mi'kmaq chief said that the area meant "a bad place to get logs out." Most likely the word is a bastardization of "pokeloken" a word used by lumberjacks from Maine, who worked in New Brunswick, which means "marsh."
