EtymologyEdit

Penn (William Penn) +‎ sylvan (woods) +‎ -ia (land). On March 4, 1681, Charles II of England granted a land tract to William Penn for the area that now includes Pennsylvania. Penn then founded a colony there as a place of religious freedom for Quakers, and named it for the Latin sylva, silva (meaning "wood"), thus "Pennsylvania" (Penn's woods).
