montaña, noun:

Incidentally, the state of Montana gets its name from this word, due to the numerous mountain ranges that are there. It’s not the only place named after its mountainous terrain; Nevada means snowcapped and sierra (as in Sierra Nevada in the United States and Sierra Madre in Mexico) means mountain range.
