Technically it is not French. It is a phonetic representation of a French surname. Duluth is named for Daniel Greysolon Sieur Du Lhut, French nobleman and explorer. In 1679 he landed on Park Point, where the Aerial Lift Bridge Canal is now. In 1855 almost 200 of the few settlers on the Point were trying to select a name for the town site. They asked a visiting Presbyterian minister, Joseph Wilson to name the village and he chose " Duluth".
