10. Mianus, USA
Well someone sure made a bum move when they changed the name of Mayamus and Upper Landing to Mianus didn’t they?

Let’s be kind and say there was some logic to it as someone had previously named the river and gorge as Mianus so, naming the settlement (in Greenwich, Connecticut) seemed the right thing to do.
