    Do you know the origin of the name "Texas" and it's meaning? Lizzy
    The Spanish used the term Texas to describe the Caddo indian tribe as "friends". Caddo word meaning friend. Geez, just to think, we could live in "Amigos". Noah, just doesn't sing. Texas is better.

      I like the word "Texas" better too. Especially if pronounced "Tejas"

      Your definition fits what I learned in Texas History.

      I was taught it was a word meaning "friend" from the Wichita People, one of the tribes of the Caddo Nation.

      No doubt this little tidbit came as a result of attending 7th grade at Zundy Jr High in Wichita Falls. Lizzy

        Tehas just wouldn't be the same.
        I hear it gets pretty hot in Hune & Huly too.
        Just wouldn't be the same ole Texas.
        What would that do to the Texas Cowboys?

          ¡Viva Los Caballeros Tejanos!

          Actually, in México I think they make reference to the 'Dallas Cowboys'. They've got fans down there too. Lizzy

            No reason not to.
            They have fans worldwide.
            I even cheer them on sometimes.

                Well! Fancy that.
                I was at Zundy in 1957- 58 or thereabouts. When did you attend the old High school there? Lizzy

                  1961 grad. Sound like we are about the same age. Spent all my early years--'til '58--at the Catholic school, then over to old High.
                  Did you also go to high school there?

                    Nope! We moved from Wichita Falls to Dallas and from there to Houston, which is where I graduated in '63. Lizzy
