Cheat Sheet: Bay Area City Nicknames

I asked the Bay Area to text in the most common nickname(s) of their city to 415-478-LIVE

Are these correct? What’s missing?

  • 510 = “The 5 & dime”
  • Alameda = “Jahmeda”, “Alamurda” or “The Island City”
  • Anticoh = “The Yock” or “Gateway To The Delta”
  • Berkeley = “Bezerkely”
  • Burlingame = “B-Game” or “Brolingame”
  • Castro Valley = “CV”
  • Daly City = “Little Manila”
  • Dublin = “Dubtown”
  • East Palo Alto = “E.P.A.”
  • El Sobrante + “El Sob”
  • Fremont = “The FMT” or “Freakmont”
  • Gilroy = “Garlic Capital Of The World”
  • Hayward = “The Stack”
  • Livermore = “Liverworst”
  • Milpitas = “M-Town”
  • Moraga = “Boraga”
  • Mountain View = “The View”
  • Oakland = “Oaktown”, “The O”, or “The Town”
  • Petaluma, Piedmont, Pacifica, Pleasanton = “P-Town”
  • Pittsburg = “The Burg”
  • Pleasant Hill = “P Hizzle” or “P Hill”
  • Redwood City – “RWC” & I’ve heard NOT to call it “Deadwood City”
  • Richmond = “The Rich”
  • Rohnert Park = “RoPo”
  • San Bruno = “Trenchtown”
  • San Francisco – “Frisco” & “San Fran” are debatable. “SF” & “The City”, work.
  • San Jose = “San Jo”, “S.J.”
  • San Leandro = “The Dro”
  • San Lorenzo = “San Lo”
  • San Mateo = “Madeo”/”Mateo”
  • Santa Rosa = “Rose City” or “S.R.”
  • South San Francisco = “South City”
  • Sunnyvale = “Scummyvale”
  • Union City = “The UNE”
  • Vallejo = “Valley-Jo” or “The V”
  • Walnut Creek = “The Dub-C”

Help me out.
