States Renamed

(Read about the origin of State names at “God Bless Bjarnia”)

Did you ever wonder what states would be named if we had to start all over?  When you look at the names we give commercial products, businesses, streets, and communities nowadays, you realize we would not be limited to just Indian words or the labels already owned by people and or other places.  The state legislatures could use jazzy expressions or pleasant but sterile phrases, or just invent words or misspell them.  Based upon contemporary naming practices, I wonder if the 50 states would not have names more like those given here.  (Also visit current State names and meanings.)
