Aguons...

Hafa adai!

I was born and raised on Guam, with my mother being an Aguon(familian "chaka"). I can trace back only about 3 generations, though I really haven't started to dig in.

Anybody have info on origin of the surname? I read an article sometime back in the PDN(Guam newspaper) regarding it's origin, but did not get specific pedigree info. My understanding is that "Aguon" means "staple food"(of the Chamorros).

Best wishes! --Russ
