Manhattan
As I was going through my old notes on my iPad, I was reminded of Manhattan, and it’s meaning. Since then, F has referenced it a few more times, so I’ll share that now. If it’s been shared before, I apologize, but since the chase is progressing, maybe it’s time to go back to some old notes.

From Wikipedia:

The name Manhattan comes from the Munsi language of the Lenni Lenape meaning ISLAND OF MANY HILLS.

Other theories say that it comes from one of three Munsi words. "Manahactanienk" meaning "PLACE OF INEBRIATION".

Other possibilities are "manahatouh" meaning "A PLACE WHERE WOOD IS AVAILABLE FOR MAKING BOWS AND ARROWS,” and "menatay" meaning simply "THE ISLAND."
