Our Chipmunk Animal Onesie is a little cutie. But why do we call a small North American rodent a Chipmunk? Is it because they live in a monastery and like fried potatoes? According to wiki, the common name originally may have been spelled “chitmunk,” from the native Ottawa word jidmoonh, meaning “red squirrel”. The earliest form cited in the Oxford English Dictionary (from 1842) is “chipmonk,” however, “chipmunk” appears in several books from the 1820s and 1830s. Other early forms include “chipmuck” and “chipminck,” and in the 1830s they were also referred to as “chip squirrels;” probably in reference to the sound they make. Chipmunks have also been referred to as “striped squirrels,” “chippers,” “munks,” “timber tigers,” and “ground squirrels”. So to cut to the chase, no one seems to know.
