Wasn't that the name of the ship that brought John Winthrop and the Massachusetts charter to Boston ... at least as pronounced in New England?  And perhaps disseminated to Georgia.

The Science Channel's "What on Earth" series briefly shows a gravestone in
rural Georgia with the name "Arrabeller E. Anglin."

Arrabeller was born in 1855, but the camera cut away without showing the
year of her death.

See, the gravestone was located in the middle of an airport runway for many
years. Until one day....
