新罕布夏以英国的汉普郡(county of Hampshire)为名,是最初的13州之一(1788年添加联邦)因为境内拥有许多花岗岩露天矿场,所以新罕布夏又名「花岗岩之州」(Granite State),这个绰号也反应出该州人民对常规及俭朴政府历史的缅怀情感。另外,新夏罕布州并不征收营业税及个人所得税,这点也与它的州座右铭「不自由,毋宁死」(Live free or die)相称。相较与其他州而言,新罕布夏是相当小的一州,但它在每四年一次的总统大选中却扮演了一个重要的角色,因为新罕布夏是最早举行总统初选的州。新罕布夏的州鸟是紫梅花雀,而它的首府是康科特(Concord)


One of the original 13 states (it entered the Union in 1788), New Hampshire was named after the English county of Hampshire. New Hampshire is called the "Granite State" because of its numerous granite quarries; the nickname may also reflect the state's attachment to tradition and its history of a frugal government. There are no general sales or individual income taxes, which fits with the state motto of "Live free or die." A relatively small state, New Hampshire plays a major role every four years in the presidential election, as it holds the first primary election. New Hampshire's state bird is the purple finch and its capital is Concord.
