BOSTON (CBS) – Hate it when people call Boston “Beantown?” You’re not alone.

A new survey is ranking the most annoying city nicknames and Beantown made the list at No. 5. The nickname refers to the famous regional dish of Boston baked beans.

Coming in first was “Hollyweird” for Hollywood, “Big D” for Dallas and both nicknames for San Francisco – Frisco and San Fran.

The survey from public relations firm Bospar polled more than 1,000 Americans.
