This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. We deal with dozens of place names in the course of everyday life—of streets, schools, parks, towns, natural features. Do the names mean anything beyond just labeling where we live, the routes we drive or the places we're going? This much enlarged edition of a favorite handbook identifies the origins of nearly 1,000 familiar place names in the San Antonio region. Naming sleuth Dr. David P. Green cracks mysteries that puzzled him in earlier editions, and comes up with several hundred new entries as well. Who—or what—is it named for? A leader or a rogue? A vanished family, a favorite pet or simply someone who happened to be around when a name was needed? This is a book with answers you'll find yourself referring to again and again.
