Meaning of City Name:

The likeness of the sounds to other Indian words has caused other explanations to be offered, giving such meanings as "Eagle's Nest" and "Crow's Nest." And some people claim that "Chattanooga" means "difficulty," a word that expressed the Indian's description of the task the river encounters in flowing around Moccasin Bend.
Still there were other people who claimed that Chattanooga is a Choctaw word meaning "end of the Choctaw possessions." And "Draw-fish-out-of-the-water" found favor with some students of history. However, Joshua Ross, a nephew of the chief, declared that the word was taken from the Creek Indian word "Chat-to-to-noog-gee" which means "rock rising to a point," a fitting description of Lookout Mountain.

Chattanooga and its Various Distinctions

The city of Chattanooga is located in the U.S. state of Tennessee. Geographically, it lies between the transition of the ridge-and-valley portion of the Cumberland Plateau and the Appalachia Mountains. Chattanooga can be located in East Tennessee, just on the southeastern side along the Nickajack Lake and Chickamauga Lake. These bodies of water are part of the Tennessee River. The city lies on the northwest of Atlanta, a city in Georgia, northeast of Birmingham and Huntsville, cities in Alabama, and in the southwest of Knoxville and southeast of Nashville, both cities in Tennessee. According to the 2012 United States Census Bureau, the city has a population of 171, 279. It ranks as the 4th largest city in the state, as well as the seat of government of Hamilton County.

Chattanooga has a scenic view of ridges and mountains, which is becoming to be a national distinction in the country. Its nicknames are inspired by its panoramic wonders, such as the “River City” and “Scenic City”. Other titles, like the “Chatt”, “Nooga” and “Chattown” are created from the city’s unique name. The city has a few awards under its name. In 1962, it was given the prestigious title of “All America City”. It is also given the Tree City USA community award since the year 1990. Another distinction of the city that is quite popular in the modern times is its internet service, which the Chattanooga citizens claim to be the fastest in Western America.

Chattanooga also boasts quite a list of worldwide and nationwide distinctions. For a start, it is home to the Walnut Street Bridge, which is considered as the longest pedestrian bridge in the world. The Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park is the country’s largest and first military park to be built. Other worldwide distinctions include the Tennessee Aquarium, the largest freshwater aquarium in the world, and the Lookout Mountain Incline Railway, the steepest passenger railway line the world has ever seen. The Hunter Museum of Art is also a well-known establishment for being the largest collection of American Art in the South. Lastly, the song “Chattanooga Choo Choo” popularized by the orchestra of Glen Miller is a 1941 gold record which is known internationally.

In addition, the city is still a famous location in the map because of a unique distinction that is known to the creative community and other locals. The city of Chattanooga has a typeface of its own. In 2012, the typeface called “Chatype” was launched to the public as a free-to-download font.
