The name El Dorado has been given many meanings over time; most variations are references to a place to acquire wealth or a city of gold.  In California the name of locations with El Dorado is often used to signify regions that were involved in gold mining.  Unfortunately, gold mining is no longer a quick shot a wealth in California as it once seemingly was.  Unless, we look at it metaphorically when we reference that gold mining is the search for the best CD rates like the ore found in the certificates of deposit offered by El Dorado Savings Bank.
