i would have to think when settlers arrived here they just chose whatever ground they wanted. they would be in covered wagons and ride by some place and ask neighbor for eggs …or something. and before they left they asked "Who's your family or Who's your daddy?" Because these people came from England and probably knew the family but had to change their last name so England couldn't find them. it came from hot dogsit came from hot dogs
The Hoosier State . Indiana is one of the few states that has had only one nickname - The Hoosier State - a name it has had since the 1830s. At one time, a "hoosier" …was any rough person in the Wild West, but it eventually came to be applied contemptuously (like "Yankee") to anyone from Indiana. Nobody quite knows where "Hoosier" comes from, but it seems to have first appeared in 1826.

The Word 'Hoosier' For well over a century and a half the people of Indiana have been called Hoosiers. It is one of the oldest of state nicknames and has had a wider acceptanc…e than most. True, there are Buckeyes of Ohio, the Suckers of Illinois and the Tar heels of North Carolina - but none of these has had the popular usage accorded Hoosier. But where did Hoosier come from? What is its origin? We know that it came into general usage in the 1830s. John Finley of Richmond wrote a poem 'The Hoosier's Nest' which was used as the 'Carrier's Address' of the Indianapolis Journal, Jan. 1, 1833. It was widely copied throughout the country and even abroad. Finley originally wrote Hoosier as 'Hoosier' Apparently the poet felt that it was sufficiently familiar to be understandable to his readers. A few days later, on Jan. 8, 1833, at the Jackson Day dinner in Indianapolis, John W. Davis offered "The Hoosier State of Indiana" as a toast. And in August, former Indiana Gov. James B. Ray announced that he intended to publish a newspaper, The Hoosier, at Greencastle, Indiana. A few instances of the earlier written use of Hoosier have been found. The word appears in the 'Carrier's Address' of the Indiana Democrat on Jan. 3, 1832. GAL. Murdock wrote on Feb. 11, 1831, in a letter to Gen. John Tiptoe, "Our boat will be named the 'Indiana Hoosier.'" In a publication printed in 1860, Recollections of the Wabash Valley, Sanford Cox quotes a diary which he dates July 14, 1827, "There is a Yankee trick for you - done up by a Hoosier." One can only wonder how long before this Hoosier was used orally. As soon as the nickname came into general use, speculation began as to its origin. Among the more popular theories: When a visitor hailed a pioneer cabin in Indiana or knocked upon its door, the settler would respond, "Who's here?" Does that answer your question?
