It is probably named after the French province of Maine. Another possibility for the name "Maine" is that the people living on islands along the coast of Maine used to speak of going to the mainland as "going over to the Main."
Its U.S. postal abbreviation is ME.
The major rivers are the St. John (which, with the St. Croix, forms part of the international boundary with New Brunswick), the Penobscot, the Kennebec, the Androscoggin, and the Saco.
Augusta is the Maine state capital; Portland , Lewiston, and Bangor are the largest cities.
