The cities of Hynes and Clearwater merged in 1948. Frank Zamboni, president of the local Kiwanis Club and legend in the ice rink business, proposed the new name Paramount because Paramount Boulevard (named for the Paramount Motion Picture Company) was the former boundary between the two communities.
