That, I didn't know. Kinda makes things more confusing!

I don't understand all the duplicate names. Must not have been much creativity back when these towns were settled. Obviously, they were a bit busy, but gee...How much time does it take to come up with something new? Take a surname and add ville or town or ton to it. Look around. Is there a mountain, hill or a river closeby? Go from there. Pick something new. I'd think a new town would want a new name.

Many names came from towns in England.
