Those are awesome names. Does ABQ have a list of official neighborhoods?

This is a listing of websites for neighborhood associations in Albuquerque. It's incomplete as far as all neighborhood associations, though.

https://www.cabq.gov/council/office-...ition-websites

Last I remember there are over 250 recognized neighborhood associations in the city proper. Some of the ones I gave were outside of the city limits in adjacent, unincorporated areas of the county.

Going over that list I see Molten Rock as a unique neighborhood name. I also know of the Petroglyph Estates neighborhood which is adjacent to its namesake, the Petroglyph National Monument.

The coolest, most trendy neighborhoods in Albuquerque are probably Nob Hill and EDo (East Downtown). Up and coming neighborhoods are the Silver Platinum Downtown Neighborhood (Downtown proper), Sawmill Area, Wells Park, Old Town, West Downtown, and East Nob Hill/Highland.

Rampart, while a cool name, isn't really a neighborhood. It's a street mostly in Westlake-MacArthur Park. There is an infamous LAPD Division called Rampart Division since their original station was on Temple St next to Rampart Blvd.

My favorite 2 LA neighborhood names:

Tarzana, where the ranch of Edgar Rice Burroughs, the author of Tarzan was located.

Los Feliz (the happy), named after the Spanish Feliz family that was originally granted the rancho that existed in the area.

I have a thing for neighbourhoods/cities with "Park" and "Heights" in the name.

Here's some I like..

New York City-

Park Slope
Washington Heights
Flushing
Bensonhurst
Greenwich Village


San Francisco-

Tenderloin
Nob Hill
Russian Hill
Glen Park


Los Angeles-

Skid Row
Lincoln Heights
Bel Air
Hollywood


Dallas-

Deep Ellum
Oak Lawn
Oak Cliff
Lakewood

I also love places called "Uptown" and "Midtown" but they have to actually feel like an uptown or a midtown.

I know that the original Original Tommy's is at Beverly and Rampart.

And I think El Sereno is a cooler neighborhood name than Los Feliz imo
