Wyoming state name

The name of the state of Wyoming comes from the language of the Indians – the Delaware (Lenape), who lived in the eastern United States, in the territory of the modern states of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware and New York. Denotes the word “Wyoming”, according to different versions, “big valley” or “mountains and valleys.”

For the first time the word “Wyoming” was used to name a geographical feature in Pennsylvania, where there is a Wyoming Valley (Wyoming Valley).

When the “Territory of Wyoming” was debated in the US Congress in 1865, the name was first applied to the future state of Wyoming.

Later, the words “Cheyenne”, “Yellowstone”, “Lincoln” and others were proposed as the name of the new state, but preference was given to the name “Wyoming” already generally accepted by that time.
