Did my home town dork it up?

I'm from a place named Palos Verdes. I know what palo verde means: green stick (tree/branch).

When I looked it up with 's' on the ends (Palos Verdes) I find no meaning for either word.

So did my home town dork up the name? Or is there really some meaning?

No, in Spanish you have to add the 's' to both words or it is not correct. Por ejemplo:
Tengo dos bolsos negros - I have two black bags.
Las caras de ellas son bonitas - The girls' faces are pretty.

Interesting, because I was told (especially because both words added 's') that it was not the plural.

Gracias Motley and Heidita.

Motley is right: Palos verdes (plural of "Palo verde"), green sticks/branches...

Remember that the adjective in Spanish takes the plural.

The meaning to me, is that it has more than one green tree branch (thankfully), or am I missing something'. Like
Los Angeles &
Las Vegas, etc
