Yesterday, we published a map of extinct and endangered Houston neighborhood names. Here is that map's companion—a compendium of Houston-area neighborhood nicknames still in use today.

Please note: with the exception of "Fauxdeo Drive," I did not make any of these up. These were all presented to me as names people whom I polled had actually heard in use, and in almost all cases you can Google up examples of them in print. So don't get angry at me over the often disparaging and/or politically-incorrect nature of these names.

As with our earlier map, if you have any more suggestions, I will be happy to consider adding them. I know this map is nowhere near comprehensive.

And with no further ado, here we go...
