#3: They Have a Point
Every US state has at least one city named after somewhere in England coupled with “new”. Still, it wasn’t always an American idea. New York, for instance, was New Amsterdam (yeah, that’s not super original) up until the English took it over. King Charles II gifted it to the Duke of York, who happened to be his brother.
In what could possibly be the most self-important move ever, the Duke of York renamed it after his hometown. London also shows up in three states, though they thankfully left the “New” off. Ohio, Arkansas, and Kentucky all boast a London each. History proves that it was Londoners who did the naming, proving they’re the unimaginative ones.
