The name 'Ohio' is derived from the Seneca Indian word ohi-yo which means 'beautiful river' or 'large creek' and was originally the name of both the Ohio River and the Allegheny River. Ohio was admitted to the Union as the 17th state in 1803. Seven U.S. Presidents come from Ohio, more than any other state in the country. Ohio is also home to pioneers in spaceflight, including Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon as part of the Apollo 11 mission. Known to many as the 'Buckeye State', Ohio's ranks 7th among the 50 states in population.
