Its LARAMIE - after that ever popular Texas town and the reference to those long horn stears that are common in the area!

I believe the Laramie Package was actually named for Laramie, Wyoming. The location of that town site was chosen by General Dodge.

Laramie is how it's spelled.

Laramie Wyoming takes its name from Jacques LaRamie, a French or French-Canadian trapper who disappeared in the Laramie Mountains in the late 1810s and was never heard from again. He was one of the first Europeans to visit the area, and his name was given to a river, mountain range, peak, US Army fort, county, and city. More Wyoming landmarks are named for him than any other trapper but Jim Bridger.

True but the location of the Town Site was chosen by General Dodge. I have no idea if he was related to Dodge Bros. the Truck Manufacturer but it very well could figure into the selection of that name.
