Wikipedia, July 22, 2019 (Moab, Utah; county seat and largest city in Grand County; settled 1878; incorporated 1902; some of the area's early residents attempted to change the city's name, because in the Christian Bible, Moabites are demeaned as incestuous and idolatrous. One petition in 1890 had 59 signatures and requested a name change to "Vina". Another effort attempted to change the name to "Uvadalia". Both attempts failed; 38°34ʹ21ʺN 109°32ʹ59ʺW)
