WhitherWashingtonUKUSAcitynameorigins Photo Many USA cities' names obviously came from their British counterparts.
(OK - Washington DC is a little more indirect - but George Washington's family's name did of course originate from the town of Washington in England!).
So it might be of interest to see how all these Anglo-USA town names actually originated in the first place.
I'll give you a USA city name, and, for its original British version, a choice of the name's early meaning.
Most Sploofers, wherever in the world, will probably have to make intelligent (or otherwise!) guesses, so we're on a level playing field.
