Imagine back over 140 years ago. Who decided to name this place Manitoba? Then who decided to name this city Winnipeg?
Joseph was raised in rural Manitoba and now lives in Winnipeg. He is married with two kids and loves to write. He is a volunteer editor and contributor for Wikipedia. His interests are rare books, history, philosophy, nature, hiking, education, politics, gardening, native studies, wild edibles, archival research, and science.
There is a lot of amazing history to ponder. Places will never be seen the same way after realizing the history of names over hundreds of years.
