How did Wisconsin get its name?

The French explorer Jacques Marquette arrived in the area of what is now Wisconsin and named the river near it (the Wisconsin River) Meskousing. The spelling of this river was boched by other explorers until it became Ouisconsin. The English spelled it so it was more pronouncable to the English-speaking tongue in the 19th century.
The name Wisconsin originates from the misspelling of the words Meskousing (Native American) and Ouisconsing. in 1830, the House of Representatives began the spelling of the name Wisconsin.
