What do you know about the origin of the naming of various things around Pittsburgh? Who was McKee and where are his ‘rocks’? Was Ellwood City named after a Blues Brother? Avalon – the ‘Land of Apples’?

In our first-ever follow-up episode of the Pittsburgh Oddcast on the history and origin of Pittsburgh’s names, we answer listener mail, talk Turkey (Devonshire, that is), discuss the importance of naming things for perpetuity sake and discover that Moon and Mars were quite possibly, not named after their celestial counterparts after all.

What question have you always have about an area of Pittsburgh? Send us your requests and your answers may be featured on a future episode that will complete our ‘Names’ trilogy.
