New Hampshire – the state that’s named for a county

(New York could be for a city or a duke as well.)

The rest could be grouped mostly around royalty, Native names, or descriptions from Spanish or French.

It does make for a curious mix, these United States.

What’s the origin of your state’s name? Or even the city?
