Unique Place Names

Naming in OregonEver wondered about where all those unusual place names in Oregon came from? Here, thanks to Travel Oregon, names
like Yaquina, Luckiamute, Tamanawas, Ochoco and many more are explained, along with the current local pronunciations.

It is no surprise that most have Indian tribal language roots. But notice how well and easily these names are accepted by the locals. So why shouldn’t your new product or company have an unusual name from which you can build a very unique brand?

Thanks Robin Maxkii for such a thorough and excellent article.
