    Great list! When I wrote the Master Plan for Paw Paw, MI, it was extremely frustrating because MS Word kept flagging the second “paw” as a repeated word!

    Another type of municipality-naming double dipping: A frustration from my Michigan consulting days was keeping straight the cities/villages located in townships with the same name. It was very important to the client that you not confuse one with the other! .

    Also, I would add Bora Bora in the French Society Islands to your list!
