Since its inception in the 1860s, Laramie has gone by the nickname "The Gem City." In recent years, the city has also been referred to as "Laradise."  The term has caught on so quickly, some local vendors sell t-shirts emblazoned with the word, much to the dismay of many local residents. Frankly, some people hate it.
