    Bit of nitpicking but Cincinnati is named after the Society of Cincinnatus, not Cincinnatus.

    My favorite 'nickname' is Cincinnati.

    If you understand where the name comes from and use anything less then you are both lazy and disrespectful.

    Same as the residents of San Franciso feel about 'Frisco'.

    I have a cousin who has "513" tattooed on his forearm. I wanted to point out to him that area codes are not set in stone, but wondering if this was some gang related thing, I let it go. He's not exactly a model citizen.

    My Grandfather used to refer to the city as "Cincinna-tuh." Never understood why he pronounced it like that, but it stuck with me.

    I'm partial to Porkopolis myself. I've even used it as a screen name on several sites. I love The Queen City as well but since Charlotte also uses that one it leaves folks open to confusion.

    That's what a lot of folks around here call it. I just call it Cincinnati. I'm an out of towner so I don't think I count anyway.

    That's cool to know. I'd heard the story before, but couldn't remember. Just love the name, "Cincinnatus".

    My wife is from Texas and refers to Cincinnati Chili as 'Stinky Nasty Chili'. I have no idea why she isn't my ex-wife with an attitude like that. I get those Blue Cincinnati Chili packages from Kroger's (about the best one can do in Houston) and make it as often as possible. I'm wearing her down - slowly.

    Let me guess, he called Washington D.C. "Warsh-ing-ton D.C."

    If I'm correct, then we come from the same sort of people.
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    Re: Best Cincinnati Nickname?

    Tixe, you made me do some research, and now I like the name Losantiville (city opposite the mouth of the Licking River).
    What if this is as good as it gets?
