  2. 2. A Brief History of Hollywood Hollywood is a district in Los Angeles, California, situated west-northwest of Downtown Los Angeles. Due to its fame and cultural identity as the historical center of movie studios and movie stars the word "Hollywood" is often used as a metonym for the cinema of the United States.
  3. 3. The name Hollywood was coined by H. J. Whitley, the Father of Hollywood. He and his wife Gigi came up with the name while on their honeymoon, from Margaret Virginia Whitley's memoir. Another story refers the name to Harvey Wilcox who bought land in the area for development of homes. His wife Daeida met a woman on a train who mentioned that she had named her Ohio summer home Hollywood. Daeide who liked the name gave it to their new development. The name first appeared on the Wilcox's map of the subdivision, filed to the county recorder on February 1, 1887. Hollywood is also the name of a much older district lying approximately 8km south of the city of Birmingham, England.
