Name Seattle
Details The largest city in Washington is on Puget Sound in northwest King County. It extends 15 miles north-south, and about nine miles east-west, with the main business section centering around Elliott Bay. The city has diversified industries and businesses. It was named for Noah Sealth, chief of several Indian tribes when Seattle was established in 1851. He was very friendly to white settlers. The Indian name of the site of the city was Tzee-tzee-lal-itc, meaning little place where one crosses over. The reference was to an Indian trail which started at the foot of present Yesler Way and ran over the hills to the east, terminating on Lake Washington.
