Name Game

Fremont is named after a town in Nebraska. Montlake was a marketing name made up by real estate agents. The name Queen Anne started as a joke. Magnolia came from a mistaken identification of the local trees. If you've always been curious where Seattle's neighborhoods get their names from, be curious no more. But beware, the answers usually aren't as romantic as you'd hoped. [Mental Floss]
