On 26 March 2024 My Modern Met reported: In an effort to unravel the meaning behind state and city names across the U.S., WordTips has created a map featuring the literal translations of their names -- opening a window to the history of each area. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of culture, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

'To know the meaning of the place names around us is to learn how the land, the history, and the culture of a locality have developed over the centuries,' writes the WordTips team. To find these answers, they turned to etymology, as well as the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the Encyclopedia Britannica, the American Library Association, and regional news reports, looking for at least two sources for each 'literal translation.' In the end, they uncovered the meaning of all U.S. state names, each U.S. state's capital city, and 178 of America's biggest cities.
