California Place Names

This page offers an alphabetical listing of place names throughout California. This is not a complete list of every last place name that has ever existed in California. It does include not only a sampling of the largest communities in the Golden State, but also a number of smaller towns.

Located in the Pacific Time Zone, California can be found on the Pacific coast of North America, and is bordered on the north by Oregon, on the east by Nevada and Arizona, and on the south by Baja California in Mexico.

Each of these cities, towns and place names has been officially recognized as a populated place by the U.S. government.

PUNCTUATION NOTE: The U.S. government does not use possessive apostrophes in U.S. place names. Even when proper punctuation would call for the use of a possessive apostrophe in a city or town name, they are not used. When the name of local businesses, or street names incorporate the town's name, that specific usage may utilize an apostrophe.

For an extensive list of cities and towns in states throughout the United States, visit U.S. cities and towns shown in their respective time zones.

Also be sure and visit our collection of unusual, bizarre or humorous names of towns.
