Discuss Benayah's answer to: What cities have the same names?

Besides Bethlehem, Pennsylvania what other cities or towns in the US, have the same names as locations in the Middle East?

 I know there are many in the states, but the few I know are: Carmel, Jordan, Jerusalem. By the way, did you know that there are 2 Bethlehem's in Israel? Besides Bethlehem - Judah, birthplace of Israel's King David and according to the Christian tradition hence the birthplace of Jesus from Nazareth, there is also a Bethlehem in Galilee. This was very common in biblical times: We have Hatzor in the Negev and Hatzor in Galilee, and also later we have Caesarea Maritima on the Mediterranean coast and Caesarea Philipii in the Golan Heights.
