Quebecois Place Name

The setting in the story is Maine and I need the name for a sea cave. The First Nation's name would loosely translate as "womb of the earth," however, my 15th century French explorers decided that it needed a related but raunchier name.

I played with a translator, but as usual, the kind of term that I'm looking for doesn't necessarily parse well. So in the spirit of les Trois Tétons, I'm taking this under a cut so as not to offend Collapse )
