A photo from about 11 years ago, when we lived in San Diego. Diego is another Spanish variant of James, but this particular San Diego/Saint James is not Saint James the Greater. This San Diego/Saint James was born in the province of Seville, Spain near 1400 and his parents had great devotion to Saint James the Greater, so named their son after him. He became a very holy and good person and was canonized a saint after he died. So, not long after the Spaniards had arrived at what we now call southern California and had their first mass on the feast day of this saint, they decided to name the new settlement after him. So, San Diego, CA is named after San Diego of Spain who was named after Saint James the Greater.
