There are two possible scenarios for the origin of the name "Canada". One possible explanation being that Canada (or “kanata”) is the Huron-Iroquois word for settlement, since the area once had a large population of Native Americans. The other explanation involves Zebulon Pike, a general in the War of 1812 who most of Pike County is named after. Pike died in Canada, which leads to this being a possible origin of the name "Canada".
