Why the name Losantiville?

For a brief period of time at its founding in 1788, the city of Cincinnati was known as Losantiville, a name created from four parts: the city (the French ville), opposite (the Greek anti), the mouth (the Latin os) of the Licking River in northern Kentucky (the letter L).


Today, Cincinnati is often called the Queen City of the West or the City of Seven Hills; Losantiville is used less frequently.
