Where does the name Canada come from?

In 1535, two Aboriginal youths used the Huron-Iroquois word “kanata,” which means “village” or “settlement,” to tell Jacques Cartier the way to Stadacona (site of present-day Québec City). Cartier used “Canada” to refer not only to Stadacona, but also to the entire area subject to Donnacona, Chief at Stadacona.

By 1547, the first world map to show the discoveries made on Cartier’s second voyage applied the word “Canada” to the area north of the St. Lawrence gulf and river. By 1550, maps were also placing the name south of the river. The first use of “Canada” as an official name came in 1791 when the Constitutional Act (or Canada Act) divided Quebec, then considerably larger, into the provinces of Upper Canada and Lower Canada. In 1841, they were united to become the Province of Canada. At the time of Confederation, the new country took the name of Canada.
Canada’s national anthem : O Canada

O Canada! Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command
With glowing hearts we see thee rise
The true North strong and free!
From far and wide, O Canada
We stand on guard for thee
God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee
