    Good answer except that the discussion about Colorado meaning "red" is not exactly the case. As I said in my response to Kristen, Colorado in Spanish actually means "colored", but can also mean"red"...although the word for red is "rojo".

    Colorado. named for the river, Spanish Rio Colorado, from colorado "ruddy, reddish," literally "colored," past participle of colorar "to color, dye, paint," from Latin colorare. Florida means flowered. Nevada: snowy
