    1839 · From Swamp to Beautiful Place

    Age 20

    By 1829 Venus, Illinois had grown sufficiently and in 1832 was one of the contenders for the new county seat. However, the honor was awarded to a nearby city, Carthage. In 1834 the name Venus was changed to Commerce because the settlers felt that the new name better suited their plans. But during late 1839, arriving members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints bought the small town of Commerce and in April 1840 it was renamed Nauvoo by Joseph Smith Jr., who led the Latter-Day Saints to Nauvoo to escape persecution in Missouri. The name Nauvoo is derived from the traditional Hebrew language. It is notable that by 1844 Nauvoo's population had swollen to around 12,000 residents, rivaling the size of Chicago at the time. After the Latter-Day Saints left the population settled down toward 2,000 people.

    Name Meaning

    English, Scottish, German, Dutch, French (mainly Alsace and Lorraine), Hungarian, Czech, Slovak, Polish, Croatian, and Slovenian: from the ancient Germanic personal name Arnwald (Middle English Arnold, Old French Arnaut), composed of the elements arn ‘eagle’ + wald ‘rule, power’. This name was introduced to Britain by the Normans.

    English: habitational name from either of two places called Arnold in Nottinghamshire and East Yorkshire, from Old English earn ‘eagle’ + halh ‘nook’.

    Jewish (Ashkenazic): adoption of the German personal name (see 1 above), at least in part on account of its resemblance to the Jewish name Aaron .
