What is the full name of Los Angeles?

Answer: The original name is "El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles de Porciúncula" (in English, "town of our lady the Queen of Angels of the little Portion").

This is the stuff that I don't know how I don't know about it. If you're from Los Angeles is this common knowledge? I literally had zero idea that this was even a thing until a few minutes ago. It kind of blows my mind, because I thought I was already abbreviating the city's name by calling it "L.A.". Sounds like people have just been getting more and more annoyed over the years and keep chopping out words of the actual name. 

I wish people actually had to say the real name. Can you imagine Kim Kardashian or any of the celebrities trying to talk about where they live in a TV interview or something? Or better yet, I wish they had to text it because not only is it a mouthful, but trying to spell it would be huge pain as well.

Well, guess you learn something new every day. I'm going to keep calling is LA.
