Etymology edit

From Swedish Stockholm (Stockholm), compound of stock (log) (due to the logs which were put outside of the Stockholm shores to prevent ships from invading), from Old Swedish stokker (tree trunk, log), from Old Norse stokkr, from Proto-Germanic *stukkaz (stick, beam, stump), from Proto-Indo-European *(s)tewg- (to push; hit), from *(s)tew- (to push, hit) + holme (holm, islet) (thought to refer to the islet Helgeandsholmen in central Stockholm), from Old Swedish holmber, Old Norse holmr, from Proto-Germanic *hulmaz (small island, hill, mound), from Pre-Germanic *kl̥Hmos, likely from an original mn-stem; from Proto-Indo-European *kelH- (to rise, be tall, hill).

The place names in the Americas are named after English Stockholm, which then again are all named after the Swedish capital with the same origin. The other place names are likely named directly after Swedish Stockholm (Stockholm), or have the same etymology as Stockholm.
