Just out of curiosity, what language did you think they were? They sure don't sound English or Dutch.

I was wrong about "Schuylkill." Scratch that off Pennsylvania's list and add Lackawanna, Shenango and Venango to it.

The only ones I know of in CT were the Pequot and Mohegan tribes. There was another one called Schitagotokie or something.

Default another in florida?

Is Kissimmee a Native American name?
I know these for sure: Dakota, Utah, Wyoming, Kentucky, Minnesota, Michigan/Gitchee Gumee.
I am also assuming the following:
Oregon, Idaho, Colorado, Arizona, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Alaska, Tennessee, Nevada.
On a related note: Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario.

New York State probably has lots of Indian names, but I'll stick to the ones that I can think of (and hopefully spell right) in Long Island

Amagansett
Mineola
Nesconset
Patchogue
Quogue
Ronkonkoma
Sagaponack
Wyandanch

I guess I just never really thought of what language of origin some of the "less-Native-sounding" places have. To me, some of these names sound relatively normal (edit: European origin): Lehigh, Raritan, Passaic, Perth Amboy, etc. It's probably just because I grew up hearing them all the time.
