Description

Excerpt from 1890-1990: A Century of Service: United States Board on Geographic Names Geographic names are phenomena of language applied to phenomena of geography. They are indispensable to communication. They identify individual hills, rivers, towns, and other such entities and facilitate reference to them, as personal names do for people. Obviously, the more distinctive the name the better it will do this. Ideally, there should be but one invariable name for a given entity and only one entity by that name.
