Oneonta is a Native American name for girls. Meaning “place of open rocks,” it refers to a prominent geological formation called Table Rock in a city in southern Otsego County, New York. Nicknamed “The City of Hills,” this land is known as Oneonta and was once inhabited by the ancestors of today’s Algonquin and Iroquoian-speaking tribes. Whether you claim ties to these Indigenous peoples or you call the city home, it can be a beautiful way to share your lineage and history with your little one.
