The Naming of Canada
Jacques Cartier (a French explorer) made 3 voyages to Canada across the Atlantic, between the years 1534 and 1542. The land exploded and captured was claimed by the French King viz. King Francis I. During the voyage and the exploration, the French explorer heard the word “Kanata” from the guides. The Iroquoian word became quite popular and meant *village”. Soon it transformed into the word “Canada”, which became popular by the 1550s and appeared on the maps as well.
