After a yearlong project to replace the city's former moniker, "City of Roses," Arkansas' capital city on Monday unveiled its new nickname: "The Rock."
"The Rock kind of portrays something pretty solid," said Mayor Jim Dailey. "A rock; there is something substantive about it."
Dailey said he wasn't concerned that "The Rock" would be confused with the former Alcatraz prison in San Francisco Bay or with the professional wrestler-turned-actor.
