I can't beat Syria.
It sure is odd how some cities, mostly smaller towns I guess, are named.
There are so many duplicates and many named after other countries or countries' cities you would not expect.

in jersey it's all about washingtons.

something like 10% of all of the towns in new jersey are either named washington, or have washington in it's name (washington township, borough of washington).


apparently he had narcolepsy and just about everywhere he fell asleep, they named the town after him.

When I was a kid and Dad was on vacation from work we'd take short trips - mostly Niagara Falls (slowly I turned...) or somewhere close in OH. We went to BURRlin Ohio. I told my Dad I thought it was burrLIN Ohio, but he told me the town changed the pronunciation during WWII so it didn't sound like the city in Germany. So I wonder vit, how DO they pronounce "Syria"? Maybe it's "sighREEuh"?
