Quaggy

Not Quogue-y, but quag + the suffix y (OED: "the one descending from the OE. adj. suffix -i{asg}, which represents under a common form two OTeut. suffixes *-{imacbreve}{asg}a-, -a{asg}a-, still distinguishable in OE. by the presence or absence respectively of mutation of the stem vowel of the n. to which it is added . . .").

Let's see if the old letters came through. My guess is No.
