What’s in a name?

For years-and-years we here in Central Florida have had a couple of identities. We’ve passively let ourselves be referred to as “O-Town,” which I’ve personally always thought to be fairly unoriginal. That, plus there’s this:

Boy Band O-Town
And this is most certainly not the “city beautiful,” yet it’s what we seem to be most well-known for these days:

So I’m making it the mission of “Pulse of Central Florida” to come-up with Central Florida’s newest nickname. No more “O-Town.” No more “The City Beautiful.” Let’s think of something creative and catchy, that the rest of the world will catch-on to.

    @Twinklesmom That’s funny, although I’ve been many places that are much, much crazier!

    I always refer to it as Crazy Town. I think it’s quite fitting….LOL

    My dog, Ollie, has like ten different nick-names, and O-town is one of them.
