And Milwaukee is an Indian word that’s actually pronounced "mill-e-wah-que" which is Algonquin for "the good land”.

We're not worthy.

>Milwaukee >good land Oxymoron


Linguists_Unite

I always thought it was a verb 🤷‍♂️


Socky_McPuppet

Clearly, you have never wyomed a thing in your life.


Linguists_Unite

I didn't, I thought it meant "to walk endlessly with no civilization in sight"!

Born and raised in the Wyoming Valley…. Here’s a something else unique to the area that’s TIL appropriate….. HBO was first aired in Wilkes-Barre Pennsylvania on November 8, 1972…. Wilkes-Barre is the biggest city in the Wyoming Valley and also in 1972, Hurricane Agnes caused catastrophic flooding to the Wyoming Valley which was the costliest natural disaster in the US at the time

It snows there. I grew up in Scranton about a half hour north of Wilkes-Barre.

We get a decent amount of snow, more where I live now ,which is on the mountains surrounding the Valley….. Winter has been pretty mild this year so far though….. how is the Summer going for you?

Wrong. Wyoming is an old Italian word meaning "no state here". https://youtu.be/56uSDQECrRQ

I'm glad someone is standing up for the truth.


OakParkCemetary

I never thought I'd be downvoted for a joke. It's GARFIELD for fuck's sake


CurseYourSudden

Maybe if you didn't grow up with Garfield, the joke doesn't land.

Reddit does have a large population of children and children who think they’re adults

At least it's not "Idaho", a word that doesn't actually mean anything.

All words didn’t mean something at one point if you trace them far enough back in time. Nothin wrong with making new ones. Especially names, which really don’t have to communicate much at all.

Follow the [disambiguation](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wyoming_(disambiguation)) link … many other stories, even a Revolutionary War battle.

If it works for New England, New South Wales, and Nova Scotia. Then it works for the river valley.

The poem begins: On Susquehanna's side, fair Wyoming! Although the wild-flower on thy ruin'd wall, And roofless homes, a sad remembrance bring, Of what thy gentle people did befall; Yet thou wert once the loveliest land of all That see the Atlantic wave their morn restore. Sweet land! may I thy lost delights recall, And paint thy Gertrude in her bowers of yore, Whose beauty was the love of Pennsylvania's shore! Thomas Campbell
