Redding was apparently named after an otherwise unremarkable railroad employee. I think before that, the area was generally known as poverty flats or skunk hollow. Right now, Google is taking applications to bring ultra high speed internet to some lucky community. We have to nominate ourselves, so by all means DO THAT here:
But why not take it up a notch and change the name of our fair town? What have we got to lose? We could be ridding Redding of our poverty flat roots for good. Well, I would lose my cool domain, it’s Really Redding, not Really Googleville. Small price to pay.
