Evidently Pueblo West does not want to be associated with the name Pueblo anymore.

..

New name for Pueblo West?

..

According to the news report last night, Pueblo City Council president voiced his regret that the "town of Pueblo West" wants to change its name so as to not be associated with the town of Pueblo.

At first, I was annoyed with this story. But I'm starting to find it amusing. The suggested names according to the news report are Walker's Ranch, Lake City, and Tumbleweed City.

I'm thinking just Weed City might be appropo, or how about just, Pueblo Sucks? P Dub is a local favorite.

Anybody else got anything?

This comes up from time to time. The name is unlikely to change.

There is a Weed, CA, so why not a Weed, CO? If handled properly, it could become a very prosperous place.

P West? The City That Shall Not Be Named? Suburbia?

I used to live in semi-rural Maryland, nearest city was Gaithersburg. County Council thought it would be good to change the name of the area in order to increase taxes. It is now known as North Potomac.

They could always mess with the spelling to throw people off: Pooeblowest, PwebbloWest. That could also help people get the accursed and bedeviled pronunciation correct.
