City names containing two or more first names

Below is a list of cities and towns in the USA and Canada that contain at least two (2) first names within the city/town’s name. Informal and formal variations of the same name, such as “Al” and “Alan,” “Rich” and “Richard,” and Liz/Beth and Elizabeth” are NOT counted as two separate names. Feel free to pass along any that have been missed – given the ever-widening range of names, there are certainly more. Enjoy!

    Some time back, I compiled a list of portmanteaued placenames. That is, those derived by the blending of two other names or words. There’s a fairly long section that are based on personal names.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_geographic_portmanteaus#From_personal_names

    A fair number of those belong in this list too:
    Annada MO — Ann & Ada
    Annfred WV — Ann & Fred
    Artanna OH — Art & Anna
    Clemscott OK — Clem & Scott
    Idalou TX — Ida & Lou
    Juliaetta ID — Julia & Etta
    Mary Esther FL — Mary and Esther
    Ruthilda SK — Ruth & Hilda

    there’s probably some others on that list that could be added.
