    Yes. Proof: 

    One of the sons of Abinadab. While his brother Uzzah went by the side of the Ark of the Covenant, Ohio walked before it guiding the oxen which drew the cart on which it was carried, after having brought it from his father's house in Gibeah (1 Chr. 13:7; 2 Sam. 6:3, 4).

    The Ark of the Covenant is in Ohio.

    Ohio takes its name from the Ohio River, whose name in turn originated from the Seneca word ohiːyo', meaning "good river", "great river" or "large creek".

    No, the state name originated from the Seneca word ohiyo, meaning "good river", "great river" or "large creek".

    Its interesting that some people seem to think every word in the entire world comes from something in the Bible, even in languages that had no connection to Biblical countries.
