Gudde, Third edition KindleI believe every Californian should own a copy of this book and read it through By its title this may seem to be light reading to entertain oneself with trivia but it’s a substantial work in etymology put out by the University of California Press It contains the kernels of stories about place names we use every day usually without knowing why such as Alhambra Antelope Valley Azusa Beverly Hills Daly City Castaic the Golden Gate La Tijera Los Angeles Ojai Pasadena Tijuana Temescal Canyon and countless others Because it is compact this is indeed the sort of book one can digest a page at a time here and there After reading it all the 1500 etymologies come together like a jigsaw puzzle to give a much complete picture of what the state has been like at different times

Was there once a brothel here
