I was born in Orange, California, and I've heard that there is an Orange, Florida too.
There's also an Orange, Texas (just outside of Beaumont, my hometown).

I know there are a lot of Newarks. In 2005 there was a Newark reunion hosted by then-mayor Sharpe James of Newark, NJ at which mayors and representatives from Newarks around the world gathered.

From an article on NJ.com titled, "Newarks from across the globe return for a reunion"

"An invitation to visit New Jersey was extended by [Sharpe] James to Smith [mayor of Newark, Calif.], who arrived with several members of that town's council. Their visit included stops at governmental, business and cultural landmarks, and they were honored in the parade of Portugal Day, which took place at the end of their visit. As a bond developed between the community and visitors, it was decided to hold regular meetings or "reunions" every two years, and to enlarge the circle of friends by inviting the other two dozen Newarks scattered along the East Coast, in the American heartland, and overseas namesakes in England, Canada, Australia and South Africa to join the reunions. Since that initial meeting, conferences have been hosted by Newarks in Vermont, Ohio, Illinois, Texas, California and of course, in Newark-on- Trent, Nottinghamshire, England.


While not all the far-flung Newarks will be attending, many will. That club now includes Arkansas, California, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, Newark and East Newark in New Jersey, three Newarks along with Newark Island in New York, Ohio, South Dakota, Texas, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Ontario Province in Canada, Newark-on-Trent in England, Newark in KwaZulu-Natal Province in South Africa and Newark Station in Queensland, Australia. An exhibition honoring widely divergent cities, towns, villages, and provinces on four continents opens at the Newark Public Library on June 13."

Wow, there are a lot of Newarks!!!

I've heard Portland, Oregon was named on the flip of a coin. If it had come up "tails" the city would have been Boston Oregon. Medford, Oregon was named by a railroad employee for his hometown in Massachusettes.

Lake Placid, NY and Lake Placid, FL. I believe that the lake itself is called Mirror Lake in both places.
