It's a name given to it by the original founders.

“Poughkeepsie” derives its name from a spring where Indians once gathered to weave lodges from the cattail reeds. These Native Americans called their meeting place “Uppuqui” (oo-poo-kee) meaning “lodge-covered”, plus “ipis” meaning “little water”, plus “ing” meaning “place”, all of which translated to “the reed-covered lodge by the little water place”, or “Uppuqui-ipis-ing”. This later evolved into “Apokeepsing”, then into “Poughkeepsing” and finally, “Poughkeepsie”.

Poughkeepsie is a place that most people on the East Coast have heard of, but they're not sure why. I think there was a famous person that lived there or something along those lines.
