The spelled name of this one word place is kind of interesting

It has within its name:

  1. Three first names

  2. One last name

  3. One name of a country

  4. One name of a Province/State/Territory

  5. One name of a city

  6. Name of a college/university -- kind of.

All the names above, as they are spelled, appear uninterrupted or unbroken in the original word. (so if the first name is John it appears as john not j__ohn). Just an example. John is not in the word.

No rearranged letters of course. Names do not necessarily appear in the order I have given above

I think this is simple enough so no computers are needed.


The place is a city

  • $\begingroup$ No computers? Fair enough...but I still can't think of a way to do it with a computer :)) $\endgroup$ – NL628 Jan 7 '18 at 22:14
  • $\begingroup$ Just as a question, how common do the first/last names have to be? $\endgroup$ – NL628 Jan 7 '18 at 22:15
  • $\begingroup$ Names are quite common $\endgroup$ – DrD Jan 7 '18 at 23:12
  • $\begingroup$ Are those first names and the last name popular Western names (e.g. Max, Sam)? Or more generically, are they something used globally (e.g. John), or are they very region specific (e.g. Ram, which is Indian)? $\endgroup$ – Phylyp Jan 8 '18 at 4:41
