The city started as a settlement in September 1781 with a population of 44. The town was named "El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles del Río de Porciúncula", this name was just too long to memorize, and so it was soon shortened to Los Angeles.

100 years later after the completion of the Southern Pacific Railroad line to Los Angeles in 1876 the population has grown to more than 10,000 people.

Today Los Angeles has a population of about 4 million inhabitants. 18.5 million live in the Greater Los Angeles Area (in 2015), Greater Los Angeles is the second-largest urban region in the United States. Within the Los Angeles–Long Beach–Anaheim MSA area are about 50 cities and towns, the largest are Long Beach, Anaheim, Santa Ana, Irvine, Glendale, and Huntington Beach.
