But to an extent I agree with Dirty when it comes to Canada being too cold. Shoveling wet snow of 30cm at 4:30 in the morning is no fun. Also when the temperature drops below -35 degree, you wish you quit the job and stay home or go back home to India.

So the chief pulled out the first letter and said, "C, eh"

Then second letter, "N, eh"

And third letter, "D, eh"

And thats how the name was coined.
.The name of Canada has been in use since the earliest European settlement in Canada, with the name originating from a First Nations word kanata (or canada) for "settlement", "village", or "land". Today, Canada is pronounced /ˈkænədə/ in English and /kanada/ or /kanadɑ/ in French. In Inuktitut, one of the official languages of the territory of Nunavut, the First Nations word (pronounced /kanata/) is used, with the Inuktitut syllabics ᑲᓇᑕ
