Perhaps I’m jumping the gun a bit by announcing a potential name change, but there’s some interesting news circling around the Internets this morning. Spanish historian Alfonso Ensenat de Villalonga is proclaiming that the guy who our city was named after is not who we’ve always though he was.

Alfonso’s theory is that Christopher Columbus was actually named Pedro Scotto, and he was of Scottish origin. You can read more about this new theory here.
