Expedia Canada put together a list of all the states' names literal meanings.

Most Texans know that Texas means "Friend", but do you know what Arkansas means?

If someone put a gun to my head I would say it's a back hand to the people of Kansas. "This is Ar-Kansas bitches!"

Montana on the other hand means "Mountainous". What are the odds of that?

Hawaii's literal meaning is "Place of the Gods".
