  • Show me state
  • "Grand Canyon State"
  • The Golden State, California.
  • “Badger State” Although the badger has been closely associated with Wisconsin since territorial days, it was not declared the official state animal until 1957. Over the years its likeness had been incorporated in the state coat of arms, the seal, the flag and even State Capitol architecture, as well as being immortalized in the song "On, Wisconsin!" ("Grand old bager state!") -- Thanks to http://www.50states.com/bio/nickname5.htm
  • The Sunshine State It's more like the hot state IMO. http://www.50states.com/florida.htm
  • Minnesota, the Land of 10,000 Lakes. Also a running joke is that our state bird is the mosquito, lol.
  • The Lone Star State is where my driving license says I'm from; I was born in the Heart of Dixie; right this minute I'm sitting in the Great Lake State; tomorrow I hope I'm someplace else far away and I don't care what it's called.
  • The Palmetto State - and our state insect is, in fact, the mosquito!
  • The small wonder. They've recently had a State Motto contest to try to come up with something a little less stupid. (From what I saw, it wasn't working.)
  • The Pelican State: Because of the abundance of Brown Pelicans found along the coast of Louisiana, the state is commonly referred to as "The Pelican State." This bird has been a symbol of Louisiana since the arrival of early European settlers who were impressed with the Pelican's generous and nurturing attitude toward their young. The Pelican is Louisiana's official State Bird and appears on the Louisiana State Flag and the Great Seal. Disaster struck Louisiana in the 1960s when the use of pesticides caused the Brown Pelican, native to the area, to stop nesting along the Gulf coast. By 1966, the bird had completely disappeared in Louisiana. In 1968, Louisiana began importing fledglings from Florida in an attempt to repopulate the coastline and, in 1970, the Federal Government declared the Brown Pelican an endangered species. This is a story with a happy ending. Protection of the Brown Pelican's habitat along with repopulation efforts resulted in the Federal Government's declaration, in 1995, that the bird had "recovered" in Louisiana. The Bayou State: A bayou is a small secondary river that feeds into larger bodies of water. It is often marshy and slow moving. Because of the many slow, sluggish small streams that meander through the lowlands and marshes of the southern section of the state, Louisiana is often referred to as "The Bayou State." This nickname appeared on the Louisiana state license plates for a while beginning in 1974. It was later replaced by a World's Fair plate and, later, the Sportsman's Paradise plate. The Sugar State: In addition to cotton, rice, and sweet potatoes, Louisiana produces a large sugar cane crop. This nickname is in reference to the sugar cane grown in the state and the sugar refineries of Louisiana. The Child of the Mississippi: This nickname comes from the build up of silt deposited by the Mississippi River that contributes to the land mass of Louisiana. The Creole State: This nickname refers to the people of Louisiana of French and Spanish descent and also to the culture they have preserved. Sportsman's Paradise: This nickname pays tribute to the wildlife and the hunting, trapping and fishing resources of the state as well as other outdoor recreational and sporting activity within the state. Football ice hockey, horse racing, golf, baseball and college sports round out the "sporting" experience of "The Sportsman's Paradise." This nickname appears on the Louisiana license plate. Fisherman's Paradise: Similar to the above, this nickname touts the wide variety of excellent fishing available in the state. The Holland of America: This surprising nickname came about because of Louisiana's waterways and its trucking industry. http://www.netstate.com/states/intro/la_intro.htm#nickname

  • Oklahoma is known as the "Sooner State". In 1889, the Indian Territory was opened to settlers.

They became known as Sooners.
