Some time ago, it was popular to name towns in Missouri after other places. So, we have Mexico, California, Japan, New Madrid, Scotland, Kabul (though rendered as “Kabool”), Rolla (Rollie, N.C.), and probably a half-dozen others.

@tianalovesyou, are you looking for the names of other fictitious locations that have been used in films and stories, or do you want suggestions of names that could be used (but haven’t been) for something that you are writing?
