Know what YOUR CITY’s NAME means?

La Milpa is well loved by Milpitians. Who? Um…people from the place of the little cornfields, of course!

In Spanish, it’s Milpitas – as in La Milpa means the cornfield.

(I know, I know, bad flashbacks to that one episode of “The Twilight Zone.”)

 

Others?

 

San Jose is Saint Joe (*I’m born and raised in San Jose, so I better know THAT one)

Santa Clara is Saint Clare

Palo Alto is tall stick – after the a tall coastal redwood tree names El Palo Alto

Los Altos – the tall ones

Los Gatos is the cats

Sunnyvale got its name because it was sunny while nearby regions had fog.  Duh  🙂
