We know why most cities have their names, but not Buffalo. New York City is named after York, England; Los Angeles is the city of Our Lady, Queen of the Angels; Philadelphia is named for the Greek word for brotherly love; Toronto, for the Mohawk word for a place where trees stand in the water; Detroit and Quebec, respectively, for the French and Algonquin words for narrows; Rochester and Hamilton, for founders of those cities; and so on.
