is one of the fifty states of the United States of America, and if you think
of WWW as the acronym for the Wild Wild West - that's about it! But if you want
to know more here are some facts to feed up your curiosity..
Arizona is a part of the US region commonly known as South
West. Its border states are California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah
and bordering country is Mexico. Arizona does not have a common border with
Texas. The State has two major cities, (mega polis) Phoenix
and Tucson. Some people may be confused by the fact that the name "phoenix"
is used to call city of Phoenix (capital of Arizona) and the whole mega polis
area, which also includes Mesa, Tempe, Scottsdale, Glendale, Chandler, Gilbert,
and a few other cities, which have their own councils, police and taxes.
Origin of the Name "Arizona"
- The name "Arizona" has a few roots. It comes from Spanish interpretation
of "arizuma" originated from Aztec
Indian word for "silver-bearing" and Pima Indian word "arizonac"
for "little spring place". Keep this in mind when you go to buy some
silver jewelry made by local Indians for your significant others during the
Spring 2007 at our Nano & Giga forum.
