They primary language there is English, the main religion is Christianity, and even the names are British. Hence the name British Columbia.
It's obviously a Spanish name. Guess what?! Vancouver discovered Whidbey Island too! Whidbey Island honored the master of the Discovery, Joseph Whidbey. He discovered Vashon!!! Vashon Island was named for Vancouver's friend and colleague, Captain James Vashon. Tip: This is why it is good to be friends with an explorer. You might get something named after you.
