I found some interesting things about Canada and I thought maybe I would share what I learned.
Apparently each place in Canada is either named after the person that discovered it or after another language.
The province of BC's name was chosen by Queen Victoria in 1858, reflecting its origins as the British remainder of the Columbia District of the Hudson's Bay Company.
For Alberta it was named after Princess Louise Caroline Alberta (1848–1939), the fourth daughter of Victoria, the Queen of Canada until 1901.
The name for the province of Saskatchewan comes from the Cree, who called the Saskatchewan River "Ki-sis-kat-che-wa-ni Si-pi," meaning swiftly flowing river.
The name for the province of Nova Scotia is Latin, and means New Scotland.
Prince Edward Island was originally called Ab-eg-we-it ("lying down flat," or "cradled by the waves") by the Micmac Indians. Europeans called it the Island of Saint John in 1763; in 1799 the island was renamed Prince Edward Island, in honor of Prince Edward of England. The Garden Province, The Million Acre Farm, or Spud Island. Called by most residents simply "The Island." The capital is Charlottetown.
There remains an element of uncertainty, but most authorities credit the origin of the name Labrador to Joao Fernades a Portuguese explorer and "landholder" or Lavrador, in the Azores.
The name New Brunswick was chosen as a compliment to King George III (1760-1820) who was descended from the House of Brunswick.
Yukon's takes its name from the Gwich'in name Yu-kun-ah for the "great river" which drains most of its area. Lying in the northwestern corner of Canada's continental mainland, isolated by rugged mountains, it shares a common border and many characteristics with its American neighbor, Alaska.
Variations of the name Northwest Territories have been used to describe lands in the west and north of what is now Canada. Originally the term was applied to all lands north and west of Lake Superior. From 1870 to 1905, North-West Territories was used for the region formed from the union of Rupert's Land and the North-Western Territory. Since then, large parts of the area have been removed to form Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, Yukon and Nunavut.
The name for the territory Nunavut is an In-u-k-ti-tu-t word meaning "our land."
The name for the province of Manitoba probably comes from either the O-ji-b-wa word "man-it-o-bah" or the Cree "man-it-o-wa-pow," meaning "strait of the spirit" in reference to The Narrows of Lake Manitoba. The roaring noise of pebbles on a beach on Manitoba Island in Lake Manitoba was the source of an Indian superstition that a "man-it-o" or spirit was beating a drum.
The name for the province of Ontario is from an I-ro-qu-o-is word meaning beautiful lake or beautiful water and was first used for Lake Ontario, one of the Great Lakes.
The name Quebec comes from the Al-gon-qu-in word meaning narrow passage or strait. It originally referred to the area of Quebec City and the narrowing of the river at Cape Diamond.
(I found more but it would be a big list XD)
