Given a choice, I'd like some latin in there, otherwise it won't sound official on maps and stuff.

So I'll toss out "Tierra Pax"  if I recall it either means Peaceful land or  since I never really mastered latin...it could be a dinosaur name...Which would be kind of cool too and likely Graffy endorsed.

let's see Abenaki and Pennacook tribes were here before
I am getting a lot of conflicting names and such
Abnaki is also called the nation with some tribes inside of it

The Cowasuck, meaning the "people of the white pines", were located in the upper region of the Connecticut River.

Here I am getting 2 definitions for Pennacook (Place of falling rock) and
(The Pennacook, also called Merrimac, were located around Concord, New Hampshire and north central Massachusetts. The name means "at the bottom of the hill".) Maybe those are the same things.

Interesting explanation of their lands

 Sounds like a lame sitcom for television.    It's perfect.
