Dark red = Hispanic language origin
Bright red = American Indian names
Light blue = Named after people
Dark blue = British locales
Green = French?
Pink = Believed to be American Indian?
Gray = Unknown/Other?

What about D.C. and New Mexico?  D.C. is named for Columbus, and New Mexico is either Spanish or native, not British.  I would call it "named after pre-existing places", but I still can't figure out DC

Also, there is overlap between the categories - Loiusiana is named for a King Louis of France.

Dark blue = States with two words in their name...?

Though Arkansas is a French name, it is a French name for an Indian tribe (The Quapaw, I believe), so I don't know excatly which category it belongs in.

New York should be light blue, it was named after the Duke of York, not the city.

You're all close enough.  Dark red is for Hispanic names; bright red is for names taken from the native dialect (this is why Hawaii and Alaska are in the same category as other Native American states); light blue states are named for people; dark blue states are named for already existing places; green states are those that have French origin; gray states are those that have names of uncertain origin; and pink states are named after made-up words.

I realize there is some overlapping, so I had to just decide arbitrarily.  DC was named for the Province of Columbia, which was one of America's early alternative names.  I skipped the fact that Columbia in turn was named for Columbus.

Louisiana probably should have been made light blue, so I guess I messed that one up.  However, the French link seemed too great to ignore.  Preston is also correct about Arkansas; but once again the French connection seemed relevant.

As for New York, that was a mistake.  I always thought it was named for York, England, but it turns out I was wrong. Wink

Vermont should be green(hint).  DC is gray on purpose.  Blue = Rep, Red = Dem
Some states may be wrong due to my carelessness.  If your guess fits over 45, you're probably right.

No, it's got something to do with house seats though.  Look at Oklahoma.

Yes.  In case of a many members elected the same day, it went to the party of the majority of those.  If it was a tie, it went back to the next - to - last group to break the tie.

Based on 2004 Election Results.  I had to extrapolate some states where there wasn't enough data, and for WY-there was no data.

The more red, the longer the state's name and vice versa.

You got it. It's all about the party that increased its margin in each state from 2000-2004. Specifically:

Pink - Shifted Democrat by <1%; Light blue - Shifted Republican by <1%
Red - Shifted Democrat by 1-10%; Blue - Shifted Republican by 1-10%
Dark Red - Shifted Democract by >10%; Dark Blue - Shifted Republican by >10%
