Looks a bit too rugged to have O-potential -- in this case, not necessarily a bad thing...
Apparently got its name ~350 years ago from settlers who were resentful of the fact that the Native Americans who lived there defended their land.
There was a letter to the editor in the Hartford Courant about 20 years ago expressing outrage at the name. She apparently was moving to the area and looking at prospective homes, and declared that she could never move to a community that included a place with such a name.
