Why Should You Visit Cupertino City

Summary of Cupertino City

Cupertino ( koop-ər-teen-oh) is a city in Santa Clara County, California, United States, directly west of San Jose on the western edge of the Santa Clara Valley with portions extending into the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains.

The population was 57,820 as of the 2020 census. It is known for being the home of Apple Inc., headquartered at Apple Park.
Cupertino was named after Arroyo San José de Cupertino (now Stevens Creek). The creek had been named by Spanish explorer Juan Bautista de Anza’s cartographer, who named it after Saint Joseph of Cupertino. Saint Joseph was born Giuseppe Maria Desa, and later known as Giuseppe da Copertino.

Joseph of Cupertino was named after the town of Copertino in the Apulia region of Italy. The name Cupertino first became widely used when John T. Doyle, a San Francisco lawyer and historian, named his winery on McClellan Road “Cupertino”. After the turn of the 20th century, Cupertino displaced the former name for the region, which was “West Side”.

Although the meaning of “Copertino” is uncertain, it is likely a compound word meaning “little (covered) shelter.” The -ino suffix in Italian words indicates “small” or “little”, while “coprire” in Italian means “to cover”, and “coperto” is derived from the Latin “coopertus,” which means “covered shelter.”
