This name derives from the name of the American state, which is derived from the Spanish word “Montaña”, meaning "mountain", or more broadly, "mountainous country". In turn derives from the Latin “mons / montis > Montānus”, meaning “mountain, mountainous, rock, boulder”. Montana is a state in the Western United States. The state has several nicknames, although none official, including "big sky country" and "the treasure state", and slogans that include "land of the shining mountains" and more recently "the last best place".
