I heard that Los Angeles is actually a shortened name of the city. The full name had like six words in it. I've tried to find the full name by searching google, but I can't find it. Does anyone know if this is true, and what the full name is?

    I believe it is "Nuestra Senora Reina de los Angeles", or "Our Lady Queen of the Angels".

    The city of Los Angeles may have to change its name.

    Also, cities like San Francisco, San Diego, and Santa Barbara could be looking for new monikers.

    The reason?

    They all have religious meaning in their names.

    Los Angeles refers to the "City of Angels," while the others refer to names of saints. In fact, the official name of Los Angeles is "The Town of Our Lady the Queen of Angels of the Little Portion."

    According to the Los Angeles Daily News, a strong legal argument could be made to force municipal name changes, based on the argument the names violate the so-called separation of church and state.

    now that i've read separation of church and state again,this little phrase has been in the papers way to much lately, i would really like to grab the supreme court by the throat and scream at them that ,that is not in the constitution! all i've read on here you all know this, why can't lawyers and judges get it through thier heads.
