The origin of the name Vermont is uncertain. It is mostlythought to originate from the French les Verts Monts ,meaning "the Green Mountains".
The name means "green mountains". le Vermont is a village of some 20 homes southwest of Strasbourg,France. Vermont is grammatically correct, and it is singular. It does mean…Green Mountain, if you check back a few centuries in old french. Inmodern french, of course, one could say it is "grammaticallyincorrect." But this is a very old village. I believe, that, when it was a French territory it received thatname. The words Vert= Green and Mont= Mountain in French thereforemaking the name of the state "the Green Mountains"Also it is knownfor its large forests. Vermont got its name historically from the French.It was originallyVert-mont witch means "green mountain" that's why its nick name is"The green mountains" and their state song is "These greenmountains".
