Etymology[ edit ] When the pioneer community living near the US Army outpost of Fort Brooke was incorporated in , it was called “Tampa Town”, and the name was shortened to simply “Tampa” in The etymology of the name is unclear. The word “Tampa” may have meant “sticks of fire” in the language of the Calusa , a Native American tribe that once lived south of today’s Tampa Bay. This might be a reference to the many lightning strikes that the area receives during the summer months. Other historians claim the name means “the place to gather sticks”. Stewart writes that the name was the result of a miscommunication between the Spanish and the Indians, the Indian word being “itimpi”, meaning simply “near it”. He spelled it “Tanpa” and describes it as an important Calusa town on the west coast. While “Tanpa” may be the basis for the modern name, archaeologist Jerald Milanich states that the Calusa village of Tanpa was on the shores of Charlotte Harbor , which is about 65 miles south of Tampa Bay. A later Spanish expedition did not notice the mouth of Charlotte Harbor while sailing north along the west coast of Florida and assumed that the current Tampa Bay was the bay they sought, thus accidentally transferring the name on Spanish navigational charts. Local authorities consulted by Michael Kruse of the Tampa Bay Times suggest that “Tampan” was historically more common, while “Tampanian” became popular when the former term came to be seen as a potential insult.

Coastal water could rise up to 15 feet — flooding homes and businesses, forecasters warned.
