Added DiffLines:

* An ancient Briton community on a particular hill was named "Bree", Celtic for "hill". When the Saxons conquered it, they called it "Breedon", adding the Saxon suffix "-don" which means "hill". The community is now called "Breedon on the Hill", which, yes, means [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment "Hill-Hill on the Hill"]].

** To avoid this trope, [[MarvelComics Marvel]] mostly uses real cities, like UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity.
* In ''ComicBook/LoveAndCapes'' the cities are based on real ones and named after common traits. Deco City is Chicago for the many ArtDeco buildings that are there. Chronopolis is New York City, for its ubiquitous clock towers. Amazonia has her home in Liberty City, which is probably Washington, D.C. (since that's WonderWoman's home in America).
