    There are thousands of American cities named for British cities ( or “new” British city)

    Last I checked neither Pennsylvania nor New York were considered part of New England (although I suppose you could argue that they once were - but only if all of the remaining colonies were as well).

    And it's not just English names which were carried over. What about Mannheim, Pennsylvania or Berlin, Wisconsin? Even within the US you find more examples than I care to count. How many Portlands are there between Portland, Maine and Portland, Oregon?
