| There are conflicting
stories as to how Aloha, Oregon came to be called Aloha.
One claim by Joseph Buck in 1983 was that his uncle
postmaster Julius Buck named the city after a small
resort in Wisconsin called Aloah and the last two
letters were transposed by the Post Office Department
during the application process. This would also explain
by the city is pronounced Ah-lowwa rather than Ah-lo-ha.
Other sources say the name was chosen by Robery Caples,
a railroad worker, with no stated reason for the choice.
Still another story presented by Frithjof Tollefsen, a
former postmaster of Aloha said the name came about at a
dinner party of prominent citizens. When one guest
started singing ďAloha OeĒ someone suggested to call the
town Aloha and Dora Buck, the sister of Julius Buck,
submitted the name Aloah.
