Originally, it was named after a town in Italy, I believe. (An attempt to make it sound far more enticing than "cheap, spiceless sausage substitute", I would imagine.) Properly, the name is bologna. There are a number of meats and cheeses that are named after provinces, either to simply differentiate themselves, or to designate where they were actually first made on a regular basis. And, if you'll follow the link below, it has other connotations.Source(s): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bologna_sausage
