How Did Honduras Get Its Name?

Answer

Honduras got its name from Christopher Columbus who named the country Honduras, Spanish word for depths, a reference to the deep waters off the northern coast.I ts believed on his 4th trip he was caught by a heavy storm in front of the coast of Honduras and when he turned around the cape he exclaimed 'gracias a dios que salimos de estas honduras' which means 'thank God we came out of this Depths.'
