Letter - Why is Hamilton called The Tron?

I am moving to Hamilton on January 16. Can you please answer this question. Why is Hamilton called The Tron?

I cannot find any reasoning behind this on Google and nor can anyone from Hamilton or the rest of NZ (ie Auckland) explain this phenomenon to me.

As a new resident of this fine city, will it be left to me to create folklore for the balance of the city and country regarding "The Tron"?

I look forward to your informed response and that of your readers.
