Niagara Falls, Ontario, a world class destination, is a Canadian city with the famous waterfalls of the same name, linked with the U.S. by the Rainbow Bridge. Its site on the Niagara River's western shore overlooks the Horseshoe Falls, the cascades' most expansive section. It is believed that Niagara is a derivative of the Iroquoian word, ‘Onguiaahra’, which was anglicized by missionaries. The name appears on maps as early as 1641, and do not refer to the Niagara River but the Niagara Strait. The generally accepted meaning is, “The Strait”. Some think it was derived from the narrow waterway that flows north from Lakes Erie to Lake Ontario. Others believe the Niagara is taken from another native word meaning, ‘Thundering Waters’. Regardless wherever the word comes from, Niagara is another word for anything powerful!
