How did Vermont get its name?

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. In modern french, of course, one could say it is "grammatically incorrect." But this is a very old village.

I believe, that, when it was a French territory it received that name. The words Vert= Green and Mont= Mountain in French therefore making the name of the state "the Green Mountains"Also it is known for its large forests.

Vermont got its name historically from the French.It was originally Vert-mont witch means "green mountain" that's why its nick name is "The green mountains" and their state song is "These green mountains".
