'The Hoosier State'
The nickname's origin is not really clear: some say it derived from Sam Hoosier who preferred to hire workers from certain regions of the state because he said they were the best and better than from other regions. Other say that it just derived from the slang form of: Who is here.
The name Indiana means 'Land of the Indians'.
