I forgot 'Pill Hill' in Chicago. Early settlers were doctors.

Seattle also has a Pill Hill, it's real name is First Hill. It is directly adjacent to the commercial district, it's name comes from the concentration of hospitals in the area.

In addition to Squirrel Hill, Pittsburgh also has Polish Hill, and The Hill within the city limits. There is also the North Hills, South Hills, Mt. Lebanon and Mt. Oliver in the suburbs. A very hilly place.

Do any of y'all know what 'Grand Tetons' means in French? That's pretty funny -- like naming a mountain range 'hooters'.

Louisville has lots of "saintly" neighborhoods and suburbs - St Matthews, St Dennis, St Joseph, St Helens. There is an ethnic Bavarian neighborhood named Schnitzelburg - which means 'carpenter's town' in German. My other favorites namewise are Crescent Hill, Lyndon, Pleasure Ridge Park, Valley Station, and Park Duval
