Here is a picture of the word Durango, which is a state in north central Mexico, where the the capitol city also has the same name. That’s simple enough, but where in the heck did the word come from. Is it Native, for it sure doesn’t sound Spanish. Actually, the word is reported to be of Basque origin.¬†According to ancestry.com the word means a place, possibly a fertile land located between great heights or perhaps on a great plain.
