A third theory: Wasilla is "all I saw" spelled backwards. Supply your own backstory, e.g., a lost motorist remarks to a roadside Inuit, "I thought there was supposed to be a town back there, but a bar and a gas station was All I Saw." The Inuit writes "All I Saw" with his forefinger in the dust on the motorist's rear window. The driver sees it in his rear-view mirror as he drives off and voila, a town is named.

@Mr. Wuxtry: Yours is the best explanation I've seen.

cool information about chief wasilla!
