It's a variant form of the Athabascan Denali meaning 'high one' or 'great one'. What used to be Mount McKinley has now been restored to it's native name, Denali.

Kenai is for Kenai Peninsula, also Athabascan and meaning 'flat land' and Sitka is for the Alaskan city and means 'people on the outside of Shee' (Shee being the Tlingit name for Baranof Island).
