Venice, a district on the westside of Los Angeles, is named after Venice, Italy.


Manhattan Beach, CA in the L.A. area is named after the real Manhattan of NYC. Obviously nothing alike. Manhattan Beach is a resort like CA beach city, nothing like NYC other than both are hard to find a parking spot

Lubbock, Texas has a rather odd street naming system. The north/south streets are named after cities east of the Mississippi, and some east/west streets are named after universities, so you can say you live in Boston at Harvard or in Ithaca at Cornell.
