We had South San Jose Hills, but it went too far south and now it's in L.A.

Slot of New England citys because orginally Springfield, Hartford, New Haven ect all started out at 100 or so sq miles and as population grew towns split from those cities. So Hartford has East and West Hartfors, this used to be the east and west sides of the city.

Eastpointe used to be East Detroit but they figured that the city would sound more attractive if it sounded similar to Grosse Pointe (a far more affluent suburb). I don't think it really changed anything.

Well, the city wasn't named after the state.

I am pretty sure all other cities with similar state names were named after the state like Oklahoma city, Oklahoma.
