In the year 1857, the municipality was initially named "Moose Jaw Bone Creek" by John Palliser. There are several theories regarding how the name was decided. The first theory is that, when looking at a map, the shape of the Moose Jaw River resembles the jaw of a moose. The second is that the name is derived from the Plains Cree name "moscastani-sipiy", that translates to "a warm place by the river." The Coteau Range protects the river valley from the weather conditions. The Plains Cree word Moose Jaw means "warm breezes".
