San Diego is a terrific city with a great name. However, the origin of the name is very confusing. Currently the city is named for St. Didacus of Alcalá (aka Diego de San Nicolás). The city should keep the name, but change it's patron Saint and the Saint for which it got it's name to Saint Juan Diego. Not only does this make more sense, St. Juan Diego is a more well known Saint with a better story.

Most importantly, by changing the Saint for which the city aquired its name, we will make sure that Lino Rulli the Catholic Guy was not wrong when on the April 30th, 2021 edition of SiriusXM's the Catholic Guy Show when he claimed that the city of San Diego was named after St. Juan Diego. Lino not being wrong is of the utmost importance, not just to San Diego, but to SiriusXM, the Catholic Church, and all of humanity.
