Meaning & History

This is name of places in the United States and Canada (including the one in California).
It is derived from Old English āc and land and it, obviously, means "oak land."

The city in California got its name as the area around it was called encinal, which may be derived from encinar meaning "oak grove" or "land inhabited by oaks," due to the large oak forest that covered the area.
