Anyone else named after a city?
 
Or am I alone? I know Austin is a regional, but I here it more and more. Any one have a city name that's different? Do different states name there kids after locations, or is Texas alone? I had a friend named Dallas growing up.

No, the city was named after that guy, I was named as a homage to the city, my parents did not know Stephen F. Austin, nor did they hold any reverence for him.
