The Aklan is a river on Panay Island in the Visayas, Philippines. The name of the river is where the term Aklan came from, and is derived from the word akae, which means to boil or to froth. Because of the swiftness of the river current, the water of the Aklan river seems to boil or froth. Akean therefore means "where there is boiling or frothing". Other spellings for the river are Akean, Aclan and formerly Alcan.
