There are thousands of biblical, religious, and classical place names (toponyms) in the United States, many more than any other nation.  Names from the ancient world are found in all areas of the United States, not just the so-called Bible Belt:  Bethlehem, Pennsylvania; Tekoa, Washington; Abilene, Texas; Moab, Utah; Samaria, Idaho; Canaan, Florida; Cincinnati (named for Lucius Q. Cincinnatus); Mount Hebron, California and Bethel, Alaska; and Athens, Georgia to mention just a few.
