SOME HISTORY BACKGROUND:
The name Cuyahoga is believed to mean "crooked river" from the Mohawk name Cayagaga, Some think that it comes from the Seneca word for "jawbone". This explanation, however, is uncertain . A close match in the Seneca language is Gayó'ha'geh, meaning "on your chin". The river's crooked form does vaguely resemble an animal's jawbone. but the name "Cuyahoga" ended up becoming more prevalent and folk etymology took over, creating an accidental link between the two names.
