is it true that only people from NorCal (north California) say HELLA? Do you live in another state and say Hella?

  • i live in NY. people around here said hella for a while a couple of yrs ago, but not so much anymore. it was like a trend that went out of style.

  • I live in the midwest and say Hella, lol. However, my husband is from San Francisco, and I got it from years of being married to him. I'm always saying, "that's hella good" or something to that effect. I hardly even notice I say it anymore, and people are always like..."What? Hella?", lol. It's definitely a NorCal thing, though.

  • yah thats how we say it
    if you agree with something a lot you just respond to what ever it is with the word hella
    and replace any where you would say VERY with the word HELLA
