Wikipedia: " Historian Doyce B. Nunis has said that the Spanish named it 'El Pueblo de la Reina de los Angeles' ('The Town of the Queen of the Angels'). For proof, he pointed to a map dated 1785, where that phrase was used. Frank Weber, the diocesan archivist, replied, however, that the name given by the founders was 'El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora de los Angeles de Porciuncula', or 'the town of Our Lady of the Angels of Porciuncula.' and that the map was in error." Neither historian claims that the original name was simply "Los Angeles".
