flanderschristy, The name Texas is derived from the word "teyshas" (meaning friends or allies), from the native American Caddo language.

24/24 My 6th grade teacher drilled these & the state capitals into our heads! Never thought that I would ever need to know these, I guess I was wrong. Thank you Mr. Fyffe! P.S. I found it odd that the state motto for Texas was 'friendship". I thought "Yeah, as long as your white & male!"

zachmerricle, Minnesota's motto is star of the north in French. Oro y plata is Spanish for gold and silver.

19/244. Know some, guessed at a few others. I myself have never heard of most of these. It is a shame, with the country divided today that we can not live up to the motto of most of our states.
