Mankato, like so many Native American names, is an homage to this vast world around us. This masculine pick comes from mahkahta, a Dakota word meaning "blue earth." It originates from the clay soil found in the Blue Earth River of southern Minnesota. Wherever baby calls home, Mankato is a beautiful choice for celebrating their indigenous roots and planet Earth!
