Re-reading (well, listening to Roy Dotrice) ACOK... how did Jaquen know Arya's real identity? At this point only Gendry knew, with Yoren dead.
I got the impression that he heard her praying to the weirwood trees about her father. After reading your question went back and read it again. Now I am way less sure of it, because it is not clear what words she said out loud and what words were said in her head, but it is still a possibility. Or he could have pieced little things together. Her reaction when Cersei's knights appeared looking for someone, her evening prayers, her sword, her naming herself "Arry" (when riding with Gregor he surely have heard about Arya Stark). And he was trained to notice things.
