My dad use to love to tell people he grew up IN Princess Anne (Maryland)  Laughing

That's funny! I know where that is, but I've never been there. So many places in Maryland are named after English and Irish places (Dundalk, Cecil County, Lothian). And there was an actual Lord Baltimore.

Apparently there are 8 lakes in Canada named after all of Queen Elizabeth II's grandchildren. 

Manitoba named lakes for James and Louise during one of Edward's visits, when James was a baby. Yes

Not sure about the other six.  Thinking

- The State of Louisiana was named after King Louis XIV of France.
- The City of St. Louis, MI, was named after Saint Louis, King Louis IX of France, who also names the city of São Luís, Maranhão, Brazil.
- Saint Petersburg, Russia, was named after Tsar Peter the Great.
- Petrópolis, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, was named after Emperor Pedro II.


St. Petersburg was created and named BY Peter the Great. That was his city, literally.  He laid the first stone and forced all who entered (travellers/farmers/shopkeepers/fisherman/etc..) to bring a certain quota of rocks with them each time.....to help build his city.

 Kungens Kurva-King's Bend  named after Gustaf V, was the grandfather of the current king, Carl XVI Gustaf. It got it's name when the king's chauffeur-driven 2090 Cadillac skidded off the road and ended up in a ditch.
There are rumors about why the accident happened.
Found this interesting story when reading  up about Ikea's Kamprad.The Largest Ikea is located there.

The city of Charlotte and  Mecklenburg county were named after Queen Charlotte Sophia and the area in Germany were she hailed from.
There are a lot more area's, towns and lakes that are named after royals in the US and Oz. Europe simply had already named all of it's cities and stuff, so hurrah for the colonies...

Apparently they all have lakes named after them, as that was stated when the lakes were named for Louise and James in 2008.  I believe James' lake is called Severn Lake not Lake James but I could be wrong.

There is already a Lake Louise in Canada but I think that for Queen Victoria's daughter Louise, is it not?

Right but that Louise is long dead, she likely doesn't care if little Louise can have it now. Just as Mary of Maryland is already  Dead(for soooo long already that she might be coming back any minute now) that we can easily pretend that it honors Mary, cps of Denmark... Tongue

Mary had a little land, little land, little land,
Mary had a little land, she taxed it to the bone.

And everywhere that Mary went, Mary went, Mary went,
Everywhere that Mary went, she made them pay the bills.

They paid for her to go one day, away one day, away one day,
they paid for her to go one day, too bad she didn't stay away.
