How Did Idaho Get Its Name and What Does “Idaho” Mean In Native American?

The word Idaho means nothing at all.

It is a coined, or made up, word, not a Native American word.

The name Idaho was suggested by a man in 1860 to be the name for the Colorado Territory, but people didn’t like it because it wasn’t a Native American word.

Two years later, the name was used for a new western territory, part of which later became the state of Idaho.

The Idaho town of Island Park claims to have the longest main street in the United States.

It is 33 miles (53 km) long.
