article THE in newspaper names

Post by wolverine » Fri Aug 29, 2014 6:19 pm

Hi friends,

Recently I've noticed that some newspapers, like "The New York Times", have the definite article "the" in their titles, but some others don't, for instance, "Los Angeles Times".

And this the same for some others using the words, such as herald and globe in their names.

Is it something related to grammar and word usage, or just the preference of the management of those newspaper to be named like that?
