The people of brooklyn were known as trolley dodgers, because many trolley lines converged in the borough of brooklyn. the team sort of adopted the name informally, but were not really known as the dodgers officially until much later. they were called the superbas, the robins (in honor of manager wilbert robinson...uncle robbie). it wasn't until he retired that the dodgers nickname was used all the time.
