A Conversation for Wonderful Rivers

Interesting how the Brits always cross "the River Thames" or paddle in "the River Trent", but in the USA everyone sails on "the Big Black River" or "the Mississippi River".
How do you think that difference in word order came about, and what can we deduce from it?
