- Ho-Ho-Kus is the only municipality in the United States to have two dashes in its name.
This is demonstrably false. An example: Croton-on-Hudson, New York. Some place names even have three dashes in them (although I don't know of any that are municipalities). An example: Winchester-on-the-Severn, Maryland. --220.127.116.11 01:28, 30 Mar 2005 (UTC)
History of the Name
The following sentence needs to be rewritten, preferably broken up into several shorter sentences and perhaps reorganized for clarity:
"Other meanings have been suggested over the years and are listed on the borough's website, including an Indian word for running water, a cleft in the rock or under the rock or hollow rock, the word 'hohokes', signifying the whistle of the wind against the bark of trees, the Chihohokies Indians whose chief lived here, the Dutch Hoog Akers for 'high acorns' or Hoge Aukers, Dutch for 'high oaks', the Indian word hoccus meaning 'fox', or woakus, 'gray fox', or that the 'Ho' part means joy or spirit, and the rest of the name from 'hohokes', meaning a kind of bark of a tree."
I am not really sure why so many Wikipedia article authors insist on jamming so much information into a single sentence. What do they have against the period? Is there some sort of penalty for surpassing an arbitrary sentence limit? This phenomenon is particularly common in the introductory sections to many articles. Often the first sentence is paragraph-sized. And many paragraphs are page-length. Typically, this makes the article more disorganized and harder to read. It's not a huge deal, but it would go a long way toward improving the quality of Wikipedia as a whole. Just a suggestion for future authors. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 14:51, 17 January 2022 (UTC)
