Kelly Monaco of DWTS and General Hospital hails from Poconos. Her family lived in Philadelphia throughout her high school years. Her Playboy Playmate status was big news.

It means “stream between two mountains.” The Delaware River runs through the mountains in the Gap, so it seems appropriate.

While Bushkill appears to be high in the mountains, it is actually the area’s lowest point at 340 feet.
