The first European settlements were established in the mid-19th century but Seattle has been inhabited for approximately 4,000 years. The first permanent white settler was Arthur A. Denny who was followed by an integration called Denny’s Party which arrived in the area on November 13, 1851. In 1853 settler David S. Maynard suggested that the settlement be called “Seattle” on behalf of the chief of the two local tribes that existed in the area called Ce-Atl which meant water. From that date the city took several nicknames among which stand out Ciudad Reina, Puerta a Alaska, Ciudad de la Lluvia among others, nowadays the official nickname of the city is Ciudad Esmeralda.
