South Texas has a lot of cities names after women: Alice, Edna, Donna, Mercedes, Inez, Katy.

There is a Bronte, Texas, pronounced with one syllable /bront/, which is believed to have been named after the author Charlotte Bronte, but there is no historical record of who or why named it that.

And there is the famous Langtry, Texas, named after British actress Lillie Langrty, by Judge Roy Bean when he set up his notorious saloon and courtroom there.

Other than that, I can't think of any other US city eponymous with a woman by her last name.

Alright!

Let me know when that happens and I'll be sure and make the drive up to catch it.

All the Ecotopia cities, a fictitious region spanning from Northern California up to British Columbia, have a "female" energy. Very politically correct, so learn to "walk on eggshells."

San Diego is often referred to as "Man Diego" because there are more males here than females apparently. Though I never really noticed.
