Special Feature: Wall Street History - How Wall Street Got Its Name

Few things are more satisfying than making money - we know that. But we also know that people who follow Wall Street closely, often have another passion - history.

In fact, we share your passion.

And in an effort to bridge those two interests, we're trying a little test. We're rolling out a handful of short videos about The History of Wall Street.

The one below is narrated by Ron Insana, a self described history aficionado and author of Traders' Tales: A Chronicle of Wall Street Myths, Legends, and Outright Lies.

Our debut topic is how Wall Street got its name. Do you know why Wall Street is called Wall Street? Find out now - the video is only 90 seconds!

And if you like what you see, after the video either 1) comment below or 2) send us an e-mail at fastmoney-web@cnbc.com and tell us about other Street history topics you might want us to cover.
