Dies rechtfertigt die Aufnahme im Etymologie-Portal.

La ville canadienne de Medicine Hat est surnommée par ses habitants "le chapeau" en raison de son amusant toponyme. Nommée ainsi car un sorcier indien y aurait perdu sa coiffe de plumes ("medicine hat" en anglais), elle a longtemps eu pour surnom "la ville du gaz" car son économie tournait autour de l'exploitation d'une poche de gaz naturel. Aujourd'hui, elle est célčbre pour posséder le plus grand Tee Pee du monde, accueille un festival de jazz annuel, un immense centre de loisir et organise de nombreux événements réguliers.

Vulcan (town) (W3)

Die Stadt "Vulcan" im Süden von Alberta, etwa eine Stunde von Calgary, wird auch als "Star Trek Hauptstadt", "Star Trek Capital" von Kanada genannt. Die Stadt existierte jedoch bereits lange vor der TV-Serie und wurde etwa um 1910 nach dem römischen Gott des Feuers und des Eisens benannt.

Did you know that the famous Vulcan salute was invented by Leonard Nimoy and based on a priestly blessing performed by Jewish Kohanim?
Hit the jump for a bunch of other interesting facts.


(E?)(L?) http://www.linternaute.com/voyage/magazine/villes-aux-noms-improbables/vulcan-dans-l-alberta.shtml

A l'origine, la ville de Vulcan, dans l'Alberta au Canada, a été nommée ainsi en hommage au dieu romain Vulcain. Or, il se trouve que quelques années plus tard, la série Star trek a transformé radicalement la connotation de ce nom : la plančte Vulcan est en effet le lieu de naissance du fameux Spock. Rapidement, les habitants de la ville ont pressenti le succčs touristique et ont construit des attractions touristiques Star Trek. Ils organisent fréquemment des événements et conventions qui attirent des fans mais aussi de simples curieux.

Book Description

For Albertans - and for that matter, all Canadians - the name of this western province is inseparable from the maverick attitude it connotes. Alberta conjures images of honest, backbreaking work, free from the restraints of propriety and status found in older settled lands. As with the province, the names of its cities and towns, villages and hamlets reveal attitudes, values, history and geographical connections.

Focusing not just on basic facts, The Story Behind Alberta Names fleshes out the personalities, using humorous anecdotes, the context of people's lives and careers, and the relationship between individuals and the places named for them.
