Waban or Wabanoki is correctly spelled as Wauban or, more probably, Waughban. It means “east” in the Indian language. The village name was coined after the Chief of the Nonantum Indian tribe, Waban. The chief was the first Indian in the region who converted to Christianity in 1646. The area where Waban village stands used to be his favored hunting ground.
