What do Brooklyn, Moscow, and Rome have in common? They are all popular city names that have been used to name other cities around the world. So, when someone tells you they are from Brooklyn, Moscow, or Rome that doesn't mean they are from New York, Russia, or Italy. They can actually hail from other parts of the world. That's because there are cities in other parts of the world that have the same name.

      Interesting stuff, Lena. I suppose it is a tribute to the original cities (places) that their name is used over and over again throughout the world. Thanks for sharing this information.
