In fact, Arkansas has them both lol and for that matter most every other state does too. Paris, Arkansas or London, Arkansas, or England, Arkansas.
Cant forget about Nederland, Texas. For those of you wondering Nederland is how you really call The Netherlands.
Ill admit though, I havent seen any place called København in the states.
I checked Wikipedia and noticed that a Bergen, Kentucky has been changed into Burgin. I assume it makes perfect sense if you're a Kentuckian.
Whoa! Whoa! Cool your jets me mon, it was Nieuw Nederland and Nieuw Amsterdam way before it was New York. And if you notice all of the stuff around present day New York is named after places in Nederland. For example, Brooklyn (Breukleun or something), Harlem (Haarlem) The Bronx (Jonas Bronck's Plantation), Yonkers (Jonkers), Queens (even though England has Queens too but they dont have Queensday like they do in Nederland), I mean the whole place is all Dutch. Then you got New Sweden down there in Delaware, New France up there in Quebec and you had New England too up there in Mass. New Spain was somewhere, maybe Florida. Our whole country was named this way! Well heck, most of North and South America probably. And random other places they discovered. You've got Nova Scotia which is New Scotland, down there by New Zealand (Zeeland is a province in Nederland) they have New Britain and New Ireland down there by Papua New Guinea and there is a New Hanover there too for the Germans. A handful of nations "discovered" most of the world and just named everything New (Insert place in their country) it really isnt all that creative but what are ya gonna do. I feel as though there should be a New Portugal somewhere, probably would be near Brazil?
Ontario isn't a state in USA.
Stop bashing USA and let's get on topic.
So, when I say that I have visited Anchorage, AK, or Denver, CO, am I being culturally ignorant against my own country?
