We travel there all the time. I had no idea about this!
I would have thought it meant wild winds!:=) Perhaps wild onions grew there at one time.
I remember reading this a long time ago and looking for wild onions in the woods when we lived there.
Well I never!!!!!!
we do love onions
Another fascinating tidbit!
Perfect! It's a wild onion alright......
I had heard that once. My sister lives there and she told me that the term "windy city" originated from talk about the politicians at the time being full of hot air, not because of the weather. Although the combination of tall buildings and water being downtown does make it quite windy.
So it makes all cry?
It is very similar to the original Indian name ( at least in the pronuncition) Kisses:)
Never knew that one
that's a wild fact!
Interesting, as always!Have a great weekend,-Kati
That is quite interesting. I really like the Native American word, too. Has a really nice sound to it.
