When I moved to Oakland, almost 3 years ago, the first apartment I checked out was in a district that bore the same name as my middle name. I knew this only because I saw one of those neighborhood banners hanging from a pole. Weird thing is my middle name was made up. A combination of my two grandmothers' first names and then slightly altered at that! Then I learn the district was named after an amusement park that was popular in the area in the late 1800s - early 1900s before it was razed. Anyway, I'm with you. This kinda randomness is cool. Holy crap I'm going on and on aren't I. Bye!
