Behind the Name
The name “Gaspe” was inspired by the Gaspe Peninsula region on the eastern coast of Quebec, Canada. There is also a town that shares the name, but the whole area is known for stunning beauty, with quaint fishing villages and lighthouses clinging to the rocky coastline as the landscape rises to forested mountainous peaks inland. The name comes from a Mi’kmaq word meaning “land’s end”.
