From Google:

Most common incorporated city names...
(counts according to the 2000 U.S. Census).

Franklin: 26

Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa,
Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri,
Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio,
Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia,
Wisconsin

Not from Google:

I used to work in the Grand Union supermarket in the one in NH.

For some reason I remember that the most common street name in the US is not Main, but Washington. Seems we liked our founding fathers.

Atlanta, ID & Atlanta, GA. When I moved from Boise, ID to Atlanta, GA, I had to clarify to my friends to which Atlanta I was relocating.

Oh, and there is also a Springfield in TN. I was just there last week and they had a Simpsons display set up in their City Hall!

Good ones!

is there a Miami, OH? I know that there's a Miami University in OH, but that's not the name of the town is it? Thought it was something else.
