Who named Oregon City Oregon?
Oregon City, Oregon was established by Hudson's Bay Company's Dr. John McLoughlin in 1829, before Oregon became a state and was a territory, near the confluence of the Clackamas River with the Willamette to take advantage of the power of Willamette Falls to run a lumber mill. So it is most likely it was Dr. John McLoughlin who named the city when it was established in 1829.

Yes, there is a Joseph, Oregon in the northeastern corner of the state. It is situated just to the south of Wallow lake. Named after Chief Joseph, who was born as Hin-mah-too-…yah-lat-kekt and more popularly known as Chief Joseph, or Young Joseph (March 3, 1840 - September 21, 1904) was the leader of the Wal-lam-wat-kain (Wallowa) band of Nez Perce during General Oliver O. Howard's attempt to forcibly remove his band and the other "non-treaty" Nez Perce to a reservation in Idaho. For his principled resistance to the removal, he became renowned as a humanitarian and peacemaker.
It was named for a nearby stream, which drains the southern part of the county. The name "Scappoose" is of Native American (Chinook) origin, and is said to mean "gravelly plai…n." Regrettably, since the rivers have been damned and dredged to improve shipping, create electricity and build resevoirs, the "gravelly plain" has been submerged and washed out.
