The Spanish word cañada (Spanish pronunciation: [kaˈɲaða]) means glen; it is etymologically unrelated to Canada, which is derived from an Iroquois word meaning "village" or "settlement" and generally refers to the country in North America. In some cases, the two etymologies are confused, sometimes for comedic value.[1]
