The name then referred to the legendary western river (Columbia River). By 1778 the spellingOregonIt had changed to. Rogers' petition was written as follows:
The road is ... from the Great Lakes to the headwaters of the Mississippi River, from where the Indians Oregon (Ouragon) Was heading for a river called.
Another theory is FrenchhurricaneIt came from. This is a "storm" or "HurricaneMeans. Strong in the lower Columbia River in Indian folkloreChinookWinds (warm winter winds that blow down eastern Colorado that cause temperatures to rise sharply), orGreat planesIt was applied to the "Western River" based on the story of a Frenchman who probably experienced the Chinook style for the first time. The river in the west at that timeMinnesotaWas thought to begin in the west of the Great Plains and flow west through the Great Plains.
The poet Joaquin Miller explains the origin of the Oregon name in the 1904 magazine "Sunset" as follows:.
The name Oregon is "Oregon (Oregon)Aure il agua) ”Is audibly jammed and changed to“ Oragua ”,“ Or-a-gon ”, and“ Oregon ”, probably initially in the Farallon Islands with the name of his superior.

Up the Columbia River,Mount hoodYou should hear and feel the sound of water falling from the clouds. "Oreiragua (Aure il agua) "That is to understand the full meaning of Oregon."
Book "Place Names in Oregon" (Oregon Geographic Names), The theory that was boosted as "the most credible explanation" isToponymyThis is an article published in the magazine "American Speech" by George R. Stewart. According to Stewart, the name Oregon was born out of the mistake of the person who typed it on a map of France published in the early 18th century. In this theory, the Wisconsin River (Ouisiconsink)Ouaricon-sintThe river that flows to the west is written in two lines with the spellingOuariconSeemed to be called.
