This is one of the simplest ways of naming a work of fiction. Like CharacterTitle, where the story is named after the main character in the story, ThePlace is where the main location is used as the title. ThePlace need not be where most of the action is set, it is sufficient for it to be important to the plot. If we don't know that the title is a place until near the end, then this place is TheNamesake.
