The NAME OF TORONTO has a history distinct from that of the city itself . Originally, the term "Taronto" referred to a channel of water between Lake Simcoe
Lake Simcoe
and Lake Couchiching , but in time the name passed southward, and was eventually applied to a new fort at the mouth of the Humber River. Fort Toronto
Toronto
was the first settlement in the area, and lent its name to what became the city of Toronto.

John Graves Simcoe identified the area as a strategic location to base a new capital for Upper Canada
Upper Canada
, believing Newark to be susceptible to American invasion. A garrison was established at Garrison Creek , on the western entrance to the docks of Toronto Harbour , in 1793; this later became Fort York
Fort York
. The settlement it defended was renamed York
York
on August 26, 1793, as Simcoe favoured English names over those of First Nations languages, in honour of Prince Frederick, Duke of York
York
. Residents petitioned to change the name back to Toronto, and in 1834 the city was incorporated with its original name. The name York
York
lived on through the name of York
York
County (which was later split into Metropolitan Toronto and York
York
Region ), and continues to live on through the names of several districts within the city, including Yorkville , East York , and North York
North York
, the latter two suburbs that were formally amalgamated into the "megacity" of Toronto
Toronto
on January 1, 1998.

HISTORY

A garrison was established at what would eventually become Fort York
York
, built to protect what would be the new capital of Upper Canada .

Prior to the Iroquois inhabitation of the Toronto
Toronto
region, the Wyandot (Huron) people inhabited the region, later moving north to the area around Lake Huron and Georgian Bay. The word "toronto", meaning "plenty" appears in a French lexicon of the Huron language in 1632. Toronto
Toronto
however, did not appear on any map of the region before 1650. After 1650, and the destruction of Fort Sainte Marie, the Hurons left the region.

The term "Toronto" became associated with Matchedash Bay , and was recorded with various spellings in French and English, including Tarento, Tarontha, Taronto, Toranto, Torento, Toronto, and Toronton. "Taronto" later referred to "The Narrows", a channel of water through which Lake Simcoe
Lake Simcoe
discharges into Lake Couchiching. This narrows was called TKARONTO by the Mohawk , meaning "where there are trees standing in the water", and was recorded as early as 1615 by Samuel de Champlain . Today the area is partially surrounded by trees along the water's edge with the rest with marinas and location of the historic Mnjikaning Fish Weirs .

By 1680, Lake Simcoe
Lake Simcoe
appeared as Lac de Taronto on a map created by French court official Abbé Claude Bernou; by 1686, Passage de Taronto referred to a canoe route tracking what is now the Humber River . The river became known as Rivière Taronto as the canoe route became more popular with French explorers, and by the 1720s a fort to the east of the delta on Lake Ontario was named by the French Fort Toronto. Rivière Taronto was renamed to Humber River by Simcoe.

The change of spelling from Taronto to Toronto
Toronto
is thought to originate on a 1695 map by Italian cartographer Vincenzo Coronelli
Vincenzo Coronelli
.

During his travels in Upper Canada
Upper Canada
in 1796, Isaac Weld wrote about Simcoe's policy of assigning English names to locations in Upper Canada. He opposed the renaming scheme, stating:

It is to be lamented that the Indian names, so grand and sonorous, should ever have been changed for others. Newark, Kingston, York
York
are poor substitutes for the original names of the respective places Niagara, Cataraqui, Toronto. —  Isaac Weld ,

The name has also sometimes been identified with Tarantou, a village marked on a 1656 map of New France
New France
by Nicolas Sanson . However, the location on this map is east of Lake Nipissing
Lake Nipissing
and northwest of Montreal
Montreal
in what is now Quebec.

BEGINNINGS OF UPPER CANADA

In 1786, Lord Dorchester arrived in Quebec City as Governor-in-Chief of British North America. His mission was to solve the problems of the newly landed Loyalists. At first, Dorchester suggested opening the new Canada West as districts under the Quebec government, but the British Government made known its intention to split Canada into Upper and Lower Canada. Dorchester began organizing for the new province of Upper Canada, including a capital. Dorchester's first choice was Kingston, but was aware of the number of Loyalists in the Bay of Quinte and Niagara areas, and chose instead the location north of the Bay of Toronto, midway between the settlements and 30 miles (48 km) from the US. Under the policy of the time, the British recognized aboriginal title to the land and Dorchester arranged to purchase the lands from the Mississaugas .

Dorchester intended for the location of the new capital to be named Toronto. Instead, Lieutenant Governor Simcoe ordered the name of the new settlement to be called York, after the Duke of York, who had guided a recent British victory in Holland. Simcoe is recorded as both disliking aboriginal names and disliking Dorchester. The new capital was instead named York
York
on August 27, 1793. In 1804, settler Angus MacDonald petitioned the Upper Canada
Upper Canada
Legislature to restore the name Toronto
Toronto
but this was rejected. To differentiate from York
York
in England and New York
York
City, the town was known as "Little York."

INCORPORATION OF THE CITY OF TORONTO

An early map depicting Teiaiagon and Lac Taronto, which would be renamed Lake Simcoe
Lake Simcoe
. Les Piquets refers to the fish weirs consisting of trees standing in the water. The Toronto
Toronto
Carrying-Place Trail is shown, simply marked as Portage, and Lake Ontario was then known as Lac de Frontenac.

In 1834, the Legislative Council sought to incorporate the city, then still known as York. By this time, it was already the largest city in Upper Canada, growing greatly in the late 1820s and early 1830s following the slow growth from its founding in the 1790s. The Council was petitioned to rename the city Toronto
Toronto
during its incorporation, and on March 1, 1834 debated the issue. In Debate on Name TORONTO in Incorporation Act, March 1, 1834, records indicate various council members noting their support for or opposition to the measure. The most vocal opponents were John Willson, and Mr. Jarvis and Mr. Bidwell. Proponents were William Chisholm , William Bent Berczy , and Mr. Clark. The Speaker noted that "this city will be the only City of Toronto
Toronto
in the world", to cheers from council.

The name was chosen in part to avoid the negative connotations that "York" had engendered in the city's residents, especially that of dirty Little York. Toronto
Toronto
was also considered more pleasing, as the speaker noted during the debate, "He hoped Honourable Members had the same taste for musical sounds as he had". Berczy noted that "it is the old, original name of the place, and the sound is in every respect much better".

On March 6, 1834, York
York
was officially incorporated as Toronto.

The stress is on the second syllable; with careful enunciation "Toronto" is pronounced /toʊˈrɒntoʊ/ toh-RON-toh or /təˈrɒntoʊ/ tə-RON-toh . In conversation, locals generally pronounce it /təˈrɒnoʊ/ tə-RON-oh , /ˈtrɒnoʊ/ TRON-oh , /ˈtrɒntoʊ/ TRON-toh , /toʊˈrɒnə/ toh-RON-ə , or /təˈrɒnə/ ( listen ) tə-RON-ə , or, in its most abbreviated form, /ˈtrɒnə/ TRON-ə . As with other words beginning with tr, the stressed /tr/ often sounds almost like chr, for pronunciations such as CHRON-oh and CHRON-ə . The same speaker may pronounce "Toronto" differently depending on the subject of the conversation in which it is used.

Canadian francophones say , with the French nasal on on the second syllable and, if the word is said at the end of a phrase, the stress on the third syllable.

NICKNAMES

A pen of hogs at the William Davies Company , circa 1920. Although the pork processing plants have moved out of town, Toronto's nickname of "Hogtown" remains. The seal of the former Metropolitan Toronto , containing six loops representing the six municipalities, a partial inspiration for "The Six"; Drake was 11 years old when amalgamation occurred in 1998

Toronto
Toronto
has garnered various nicknames throughout its history. Among the earliest of these was the disparaging MUDDY YORK, used during the settlement's early growth. At the time, there were no sewers or storm drains, and the streets were unpaved. During rainfall, water would accumulate on the dirt roads, transforming them into often impassable muddy avenues. A more disparaging nickname used by the early residents was LITTLE YORK, referring to its establishment as a collection of twelve log homes at the mouth of the Don River surrounded by wilderness, and used in comparison to New York City
New York City
in the United States and York
York
in England. This changed as new settlements and roads were established, extending from the newly established capital.

“ ...all roads, all new determinations of settlement radiated from the single muddy street of log houses east of the white-painted wooden church dedicated to St. James, the first representative of the present stately Cathedral ... ”

— Toronto: past and present

Adjectives were sometimes attached to Little York; records from the Legislative Council of the time indicate that DIRTY LITTLE YORK and NASTY LITTLE YORK were used by residents.

“ He hoped the name of Toronto
Toronto
would be adopted, and by that means the inhabitants would not be subjected to the indignity of residing in a place designated "dirty little York". ”

— The Town of York
York

“ It would in some measure meet his notice for a change of the seat of Government as much as could be done this Session, for it would change the name from "Nasty Little York" to the CITY OF TORONTO. ”

— The Town of York
York

In his book Naming Canada: Stories about Canadian Place Names, Alan Rayburn states that "no place in Canada has as many sobriquets as Toronto." Among them are the nicknames:

* "Centre of the Universe", as mentioned in the documentary film Let\'s All Hate Toronto
Toronto
, as the term is used derisively by residents of the rest of Canada in reference to the city. It is also infrequently used by the media. Outside Toronto, it is sometimes said to be used by residents of the city. The moniker "Center of the Universe" was originally a popular nickname for New York
York
City, and more specifically Times Square
Times Square
in Midtown Manhattan . It has since been used to refer to other cities . * "TO" or "T.O.", from Toronto, Ontario, or from TOronto; pronounced "Tee-Oh". Sometimes used as T-dot. * "The Megacity ", referring to the amalgamation of the former Metropolitan Toronto . * "The City That Works", first mentioned in a Harper\'s Magazine article written by The Washington Post
The Washington Post
correspondent Anthony Astrachan in 1975. It refers to the city's reputation for successful urban planning. * "The Big Smoke", used by Allan Fotheringham , a writer for Maclean\'s magazine, who had first heard the term applied by Aboriginal Australians to Australian cities . The Big Smoke was originally a popular nickname for London
London
, England
England
, and is now used to refer to various cities throughout the world.

* "Hogtown", said to be related to the livestock that was processed in Toronto, largely by the city's largest pork processor and packer, the William Davies Company .

* Possibly derived from the Anglo-Saxon word for York, Eoforwic , which literally translates to "wild boar village". * A by-law which imposed a 10-cent-per-pig fine on anyone allowing pigs to run in the street.

* " Toronto
Toronto
the Good", from its history as a bastion of 19th century Victorian morality and coined by mayor William Holmes Howland . An 1898 book by C.S. Clark was titled Of Toronto
Toronto
the Good. A Social Study. The Queen City of Canada As It Is. The book is a facsimile of an 1898 edition. Today sometimes used ironically to imply a less-than-great or less-than-moral status. * "Queen City ", a reference now most commonly used by French Canadians ("La Ville-Reine") or speakers of Quebec English , other French-language or Franco-Ontarian newsmedia such as Le Droit
Le Droit
or in advertising. The second part of the three-part Toronto: City of Dreams documentary about the city was titled The Queen City (1867-1939). * " Methodist Rome ", an analogy identifying the city as a centre for Canadian Methodism . * "City of Churches ". * " Hollywood North ", referring to the film industry. * "Broadway North", in reference to the Broadway theatre area in Manhattan
Manhattan
. Toronto
Toronto
is home to the world's third largest English-speaking theatre district after London
London
and NYC. * "The 416 ", referring to the original telephone area code for much of the city (the other area codes are 647 and 437); the surrounding GTA suburbs , now using area codes 905, 289, and 365 , are similarly "the 905". * "The Six" (also written as "The 6" or "The 6ix") popularized in 2015 by Toronto-born musician, Drake , with his mixtape If You\'re Reading This It\'s Too Late and 2016 album Views . Drake himself credits Toronto
Toronto
rapper Jimmy Prime with inventing the handle, but it was used by other Toronto
Toronto
rappers in the early 2000s, in songs such as Baby Blue Soundcrew 's "Love 'Em All". The usage of the nickname in many of Drake's songs has since brought it to global attention. While the meaning of the term was initially unclear, Drake clarified in a 2016 interview by Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show that it derived from the city's 416 area code and the six municipalities that amalgamated into the modern City of Toronto
Toronto
in 1998 .
