So, St Louis is named after a Norman? Why?

Good question openlyJane, here is a short story of Saint Louis or St. Louis which was named for Louis IX of France. Pierre Laclede and Auguste Chouteau recipient of a land grant from the King of France selected the site of St. Louis in 1764. Most of the early settlers were French; many were associated with the fur trade. St. Louis transferred to the Spanish in 1770, returned to France under a secret treaty with Napoleon and, following the Louisiana Purchase of 1803, became part of the United States. According to legend, on the day of transfer of the territory to the United States in 1803, St. Louis flew under three flags in one day-French, Spanish, and American.

He is the only canonised king of France; consequently, there are many places named after him, most notably St. Louis, Missouri and Mission San Luis Rey de Francia in the United States, São Luís do Maranhão, Brazil and both the state and city of San Luis Potosí in Mexico.
