Names That Are Places

Guess the places whose names are popular in the United States.
All names have been in the top 1000 baby names in the US since 2000, according to the Social Security Administration
Pink and blue indicate whether the name is more popular for girls or boys, respectively. An asterisk indicates the former name of a place of that type that still exists.
One city is now a borough. One continent might actually be two continents. Former provinces/territories were split in two. Having run out of Greek/Roman gods, the IAU started naming moons after characters from Shakespeare.
Mountains must be 5000m tall. Rivers must be 1500km in length. Cities must be a major metropolitan area. Carson and Jefferson are omitted because the city name includes the word "City".

Far more people are named Roman than Rome. Roman has risen in popularity almost every year, going from 318th in 2000 to 73rd in 2019. Rome made the list for the first time in 2019, reaching the last possible position at 1000th place.

This is one of the best quizzes I've done on this site. Nominated. I love the idea of including constellations and moons, although I had to say I did terribly at them (although who in their right mind calls their child Kale? Might as well call them Lettice or something).

The original Lincoln is, of course, the 'capital' of Lincolnshire rather than the one in Nebraska...

Difficult but Fun quiz. I got a 62% because of my lack of space knowledge but otherwise really fun.

Seems a bit of a stretch to include constellations and moons as geographical locations.

Moons are definitely geographical locations because you can go to them. Constellations, admittedly, only appear to be locations from here.

The "geo" in geographical pertains to Earth …

Sierra is certainly a popular name (having peaked at #53 for girls in 2000), but it's not the full name of the country. Tough call.

I was surprised I didn't see Stephano, Rosalind, Portia or Ferdinand; I guess they've not cracked the top 1000 names list! Thank you, this was a fun quiz

Sadly, none of those have been in the top 1000 since 2000. I rather like Portia.
