A city on San Pablo Bay in western California which is in turn named for General Mariano G. Vallejo. Fleet ballistic submarine SSBN-658 also bears the name of this distinguished Californian. See Mariano G. Vallejo for his biography.

Vallejo (CL-146) was laid down as a Worcester-class light cruiser on 16 July 1945 at Camden, N.J., by the New York Shipbuilding Corp. However, her construction was cancelled on 8 December 1945; and her hulk was subsequently scrapped.
