邁阿密的地名由來?

有人是否知道邁阿密這個地名的地名由來?不要用維基百科的連結來解答,我已看過了,無解,維基百科只提到這樣

『最初,大多數的居民希望將城市命名為「弗拉格勒」,但被亨利弗拉格勒堅定地拒絕了。於是,1896年7月28日,邁阿密建立,擁有344名市民(其中243名是白人,181人是黑人)。到1900年,有1681人居住在此地;1910年,5471人;1920年29549人。』

並沒有提到邁阿密命名的緣起…小弟想知道的就是邁阿密命名的緣起。

    邁阿密(Miami)本為今印第安納州、西南密西根州與及西俄亥俄州一帶的印第安土著,故流經的河流亦以邁阿密河命名之。其後歐洲人在邁阿密河南岸建立殖民區,形成今邁阿密之始。

    The Miami are a Native American nation originally found in what is now Indiana, southwest Michigan, and western Ohio.

    http://www.u-s-history.com/pages/h3901.html

    By the time the Spanish entrada arrived in 1513, the native inhabitants of Florida numbered roughly 250,000. Ponce de Leon was the first European to spot Miami while he was sailing into Biscayne Bay. Of “Chequescha,” the name previously used for that area, de Leon wrote of his sighting. It is not known whether de Leon actually went ashore and met the Tequesta tribe residing there.[略]

    The Village of Miami was established on a portion of that abandoned plantation soon after the Second Seminole War ended. William English, the nephew to the original plantation owner Richard Fitzpatrick, began selling plots adding buildings to the plantation near the south bank of the Miami River. After selling many plots, English left his uncle’s plantation at the beginning of the 1850s to chase the dream of gold during the California Gold Rush.

    At the outset of the Third Seminole War (1855-1858), the U.S. Army reestablished Fort Dallas on English’s plantation. Discouraged emigrants were reticent to settle in the Miami area even though this final Indian war was fought on a much smaller scale. So lackluster was its growth that by the beginning of the 1900s, the population of Miami was only 1,000 persons. The official founding of Miami occurred the same year that the first railroad train arrived in 1896. At that time, the town occupied both sides of the Miami River and the heart of its retail district resided on Avenue D, later known as Miami Avenue.

    有好幾種解釋:1.源於印安人部落的名稱。2.印第安人摩斯科克語"半島上的居民"。3.印第安特克斯塔人村落名,意為:大水。後為西班牙人所沿用。
