Ohio Nick Name
The Buckeye State
The nickname of Ohio is "The Buckeye State".

Ohio got this nickname partly because many buckeye trees once covered Ohio's hills and plains. The name buckeye stems from native Americans - Indians called the nut "hetuck" meaning buck eye, as the markings on the nut resemble the eye of a deer.
