from F. Scott Fitzgerald – The Great Gatsby (Chapter VI) on Rap Genius


The name of Dan Cody’s yacht, Tuolomee, appears to be an invented word, intended to conjure visions of an exotic American West. One possible origin it that it is a corruption of Tuolumne, a Native American word that lends its name to a California river and means something like “many stone houses.”
