 Manitoba, Canada

"The name is believed to have originated with Cree term "Man-into-wahpaow", meaning "the narrows of the Great Spirit", which describes Lake Manitoba and how it narrows significantly at the centre. The province entered confederation in 1870 following the Manitoba Act. Sir John A. Macdonald announced that the province’s name, suggested by Métis leader Louis Riel, was selected for its pleasant sound and its associations with the original inhabitants of the area."
