User-submitted facts and corrections:

  • This isn't a mistake, but the story is not clear. The City of St. Louis, Missouri was named for Saint Louis, Louis the Ninth (IX) who happened to be the patron saint of King of France when the city was named, Louis XV. The web page ( http://www.city-data.com/us-cities/The-Midwest/St-Louis-History.html) seems to state that all a bit unclearly, at least to me, and I'd bet that only a few dozen St Louisans know which king the town was named for. Hell, only a few more probably know he was French. added by K René
