Wikipedia informs me this is possibly exaggerated or wholly made up, and that even her contemporaries questioned this origin story for her name. Alternate explanations are that "it was it as a result of her warnings to men that to offend her was to "court calamity"."She sounds like a fascinating character and in 1953 there was a musical about her... then there was a 1955-1956 television series "Buffalo Bill, Jr" with a child character named Calamity, which probably led to the name's use!
