"On September 28, 1851, members of the Denny Party claimed land on what is now known as Alki Point. After a harsh winter, most of them relocated to a better-protected site on Elliott Bay.
The original location was known as New York Alki. New York, because there were a couple of founding brothers that were originally from New York, and Alki, which comes from a Chinook word that could be translated as 'by and by' or 'in a little while.' They had great expectations.
Nearby, the new settlement on Elliott Bay was known as Duwamps, named after a local Native American tribe. That was right here, Sinatra.
It kept that name until a doctor and businessman from Cleveland, David Swinson Maynard, convinced the townspeople to rename the city. Maynard claimed Duwamps sounded like a swamp, and it would not attract people. He suggested naming their town after the Duwamps Chief, who was a friend of his. That chief was known as Si'ahl, and the anglicized name became Seattle." - Comrade (the human)
"My Comrade used to call me Chunky Monkey, but I've lost weight and he now sometimes calls me Monkey Bunky! 🙈 How about you, buddies? What other names do you have? 😀" - Sinatra
