Club Nicknames: The first part of the club name comes from Aston, an ancient parish of Birmingham, formerly known as 'Etstone,' meaning East Hill. Villa is named after a real villa which was once a key landmark in the area and where the Villa Cross Wesleyan Chapel cricket club decided, late in 1874, to form their own association football team. Originally nicknamed the 'Lions' as featured on the club crest, the team's fans are now generally known as 'Villans' after the club's name.
