Have you ever wondered if you lived in a town whose name no one could ever get wrong because no other city has the same name? The chances of that are fairly good, considering that more than 15,500 places in the United States have unique names.
Some of these names are quite ordinary. For example, the city of Alamo Heights, Texas. No other area in the country shares the exact same name, but it’s self-explanatory, at least once you know it’s surrounded by San Antonio, where the Alamo is located. Similarly, the history of the name of Orange Beach, Alabama, is also somewhat predictable. It comes from the orange groves that were abundant in the area in the 19th century.
