I have been a member of Chattahoochee Lodge for over 25 years. I am currently the associate Lodge Advisor for the Lodge. During this time there has been some confusion in the lodge concerning the translation of the Lodge name and which Indian language that it orginates from. Recently I found some research material which answers the question for me.
Chattahoochee is derived from the Creeks. It is a combination of two different Creek words put together. They are as follows with the word translation: chatto (meaning a stone), and hoche (meaning flowered or marked), or the overall translation from the Creek of "the river that crosses flowered stones".
This is the reason for the original Chattahoochee flap, "the Flowering Rock"
