Etymologic cartography

  1. Delaware = de la ware, from Thomas West, 3rd Baron de la Warr ( It’s a bit odd to come up with “Lord of” when it is just the titel (i.e. Adelsprädikat) “de la” – or basically the name of a person.
    But I noticed they did the same with “Washington” – so it is probably just consistent.
