Yankee Doodle is a Anglo-American song which goes back to the 1700's, 1770 to be exact; thats the year it was first published. However the state Yankee Doodle originated from Connecticut, it is in fact their state anthem.
The nickname was Yankees. I'm not sure why, but I know that it was at first meant to be an insult but the Americans instead took pride to what they were and began calling themselves Yankees which triggered the song "Yankee Doodle."
