Greater Bay Bancorp

(GBBK)

changed the names of some of its banks.

The company's three current banking franchises in the Santa Clara Valley - San Jose National Bank, Cupertino National Bank and Bank of Santa Clara - have been combined under the single new common identity of Santa Clara Valley National Bank, the Palo Alto, Calif.-based company said.

Greater Bay has also combined two of its operations in the San Francisco Peninsula market -- Mid-Peninsula Bank and Bay Area Bank -- into the flagship Mid-Peninsula Bank identity.

The Bay Bank of Commerce franchise in San Leandro has assumed the Greater Bay Bank identity, joining with existing Greater Bay Bank offices in Fremont and San Rafael. The Company also announced the opening of a denovo office in Santa Rosa on Aug. 30 that carries the Greater Bay Bank name, as well as its intention to open an office in Oakland later this year under the Greater Bay Bank name.

Coast Commercial Bank in Santa Cruz County, Golden Gate Bank in San Francisco, Mt. Diablo National Bank in Contra Costa County, Peninsula Bank of Commerce in Millbrae, and Bank of Petaluma in Petaluma will continue to operate without change.
