So I was thinking today about town names. Alot of town names come from native words, its mostly the odd sounding names. Chilliwack for example comes from the halkomelem word chilwayuhk meaning as far as you can go up the river using a paddle. Other towns like Saanich, Capilano, Squamish, Osoyoos and the list goes on and on. Coquitlam is a funny one that means something like a horrible smell(like rotting fish).

So I was wondering if you guys know the history behind your town name?
