Actually, a lot of city/town names are named after people or things. At least, in the West. In Nevada there are a lot of towns named after people, and a couple of Spanish and American Indian names, too. I haven't seen too many around here named after other famous cities, and I'm not at all sure if they're *that* common. Most of them are probably really small towns, I bet. ===== The Aquamarine Demon Gesám ayi mozuká. Gesám dohíng mozuká.
