According to definitions.net “Kansas was named after the Kansas River which flows through it, which in turn was named after the Kansa Native American tribe, which inhabited the area. The tribe’s name is often said to mean “people of the wind” or “people of the south wind,” although this was probably not the terms original meaning.” Which could have been derived due to the mass amounts of tornadoes that earned Kansas the nickname ‘Tornado Alley’. While ducksters.com tells us, Missouri was named after the Native American tribe the Missouri and meant big canoe river or Town of canoes.
