Several helpful guides to California place names have been published. Two of the most useful are:

Gudde, Erwin Gustav. California Place Names. Berkeley, California: University of California Press, 1969. (FHL book 979.4 E2ge.)

Sanchez, Nellie Van de Grift. Spanish and Indian Place Names of California. San Francisco, California: A.M. Robertson, 1930. (FHL film 1320727 item 2.)
