There are twelve million* different places in the world named Alexandria.

I think in the Western Hemisphere especially we are prone to naming places after other places.

Well, DC doesn't really count, 'cause it's named after George. It's probably just that Washington is/was a relatively common name, so things got named after them often. ("George" is even worse though).

And the "DC" is for Columbus (District of Columbia) because they couldn't decide on a name apparently.

And then there's also Washington state...

Apart from one province in Canada, called Newfoundland (and Labrador).

I've got nothing against the place, my friend is a Newfie, its just that I think they could've found a better name than "New Found Land".

Like maybe just "Land" would've been better so the rest of the world would think we always knew it was there...
