Wekiva or Wekiwa?

September 18, 2018 @ 12:00 am - 11:59 pm

Although the springs are spelled Wekiwa Springs, and the census uses this variant, most subdivisions and streets in Seminole County use the Wekiva spelling, which is shared by the Wekiva River. Wekiwa is the Creek-Seminole word for a spring, but contrary to popular belief that Wekiva means “flowing water”,[4] it was actually an alternate spelling used by developers.[5] The pronunciation of a soft-w, sometimes perceived as a v or b, resulted in cartographers mislabeling maps in later years. The maps drawn in 1838 and 1849 were spelled Wekiwa.[1]
