I've always called it Frisco or The City, rarely San Fran. After 41 years in the Bay Area I have never heard "The Fran." Sounds weird.

I've always said San Franciso. I've heard Frisco and San Fran but not The Fran. I grew up in San Carlos and I'm now in Oregon and I say I grew up in the San Fransico Bay Area because most don't know my hometown.

Otis Redding sang "Frisco," so I think that makes it okay.

Yeah, but he didn't last very long, did he? Not intimating there's a conspiracy involved, but better safe than sorry how one calls things, ya know.

How is "S.F." not a "quick, accepted little moniker like 'L.A.'?" Let alone "not even close?"

back at you. SMH.
