Today the capital is known as Guatemala City, while the previous one is known as Antigua Guatemala (Old Guatemala).

* Any number of place names in North America are this. New England itself is named after England. New Orleans is named after Orleans, France. {{Subverted}} with New York, which was named for the Duke of York in 1664, the man who would become James II of England and VII of Scotland. OK, so ''he's'' named for the City of York, England. And before then, New York was named New Amsterdam... [[note]][[Music/TheyMightBeGiants Why they changed it, I can't say. The people just liked it better that way.]][[/note]]
