Texas towns always have a nickname, Amarillo included.

Everyone knows about D-town (Dallas), The Hub City (Lubbock), and ATX (Austin). With Amarillo being the fourteenth largest city in Texas, you would think we would eventually make a name for ourselves and get a cool nickname that everyone recognizes.

WRONG. While Amarillo's nicknames do make sense, I've never heard of any of them!

Here are 5 crazy nicknames for Amarillo you may never have heard of.
