I thought one of the nicknames was Birthplace of Presidents. If not for the Wright Brothers question I would never have thought of the correct answer.

Yes, I have heard both "birthplace of presidents" and "birthplace of astronauts." The presidents one is rarer in my experience, probably because Ohio is still second to Virginia in presidents, and because most of Ohio's presidents, frankly, were not memorable. And those who were memorable were memorable for the wrong reasons.

"Birthplace of aviation" has is on a lot of Ohio license plates. There's a feud between us and North Carolina whose motto is "first in flight" because the Wright brothers were from Ohio and built their planes there, but traveled to North Carolina to test it.

There's no such language as Iroquois, because that's a language group. It'd be like saying the name "Bordeaux" comes from Romance. The name "Ohio" is from a word in Seneca.
