Why Nootka is Nootka?

      What "Nootka" means, check please on Wikipedia. - it is quite verbose.
      If we cast this word on a realm of Polish language, it means "little note" - very tendentious and poor name - although close to essence of the application.
      My favorite meaning is the Ukrainian, where it is diminutive of Anna name and my daughter's name is Anna...
      I hope, you understand now that Nootka means more than only Nootka...
