List of non-US places that have a US place named after them

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search


This is a list of non-US places that have a US place named after them. In the case of this list, place means any named location that's smaller than a county or equivalent: cities, towns, villages, hamlets, neighborhoods, municipalities, boroughs, townships, civil parishes, localities, Census Designated Places, and some districts. Also included are country homes, castles, palaces, and similar institutions.

Note that the list is of places in other countries. Only one place in the United States is given for each foreign city, even though there are many places named after some cities. Listing all the US places named for foreign places would result in a list several times longer than this one. Another thing to note is that places that are named after people are not on this list, even if that person's name can be traced back to a city. For this reason, cities such as New York, Baltimore, New Orleans, and Albuquerque are not on the list. Places named for people can be found at List of places named after people in the United States.

Some places have an indeterminate etymology, where it is known that they are named for a city in a particular country, but there is more than one place with that name and the etymology does not distinguish which one. These entries have "needs disambiguation" in their notes section.

Places that have namesakes because they are biblical or prominent in ancient history are grouped in the section Ancient world, below the list of countries.
