He can't provide one, because there is none.
The closest he can come is the surname LaQuey, and that does not appear in any dictionary I can find.

I can't find a citation in the 4 dictionaries I use, and don't think he can find one either.

I think you're right about qualmy, too. Care to start us again?

I propose a refinement of our proper noun usage: Caps must be used where needed. What think you?

Yes, but the name still has to appear somewhere. Should it have to be in a dictionary?
