Isn't it just the case that settlers from England wanted to name thier new settlements after the places they tavelled from?

So really... it isn't a case of Americans with a lack of imaginiation... but English who were proud of thier roots (that's probably another way of saying 'lack of imagination).

Pocahontas is buried in Gravesend, at her request... so it was probably a bit nicer back in the day.
