1. Starts with "I."
2. Week's Favorite.
Since I couldn't find why they named the town Iota, Let's look at the meaning of the word.
The word is used in a common English phrase, "not one iota", meaning "not the slightest amount", in reference to a phrase in the New Testament (Matthew 5:18): "until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, (King James Version: '[not] one jot or one tittle') will pass from the Law until all is accomplished."This refers to iota, the smallest letter, or possibly Yodh, י, the smallest letter in the Hebrew alphabet.
The word 'jot' (or iot) derives from iota.
