Further research is forthcoming to determine the source of the name. 

Au contraire, Dave, the authoritative "Oregon Geographical Names" says that
Yaquina was the name of a Native American tribe resident in the area of the
current town of Newport on the Oregon coast, which leant its name to the
Yaquina River, Yaquina Bay, and Yaquina Head. When I was in Newport I heard
the locals pronounce the word as you did, without the "5", unless that is
intended as an accent or stress mark, in which case it is in the right
place. OGN offers no meaning or translation of the word.
