Miami in Ohio

Every sports season I find myself wondering why there is a Miami University in Ohio.  Thanks to the miracle of the internet, I can find out.  Turns out the Miami were a native American tribe in the Great Lakes region.  There is even a Miami River in Ohio (I did not know that).  The Miami in Florida is probably named by people from Ohio who built the railroad in south Florida.  (From:  Why is there a Miami in Ohio?)
