Common Suburb names

Common Suburb names
Speaking about Heidelberg, here in Melbourne, we have the following suburbs: (some)

Brunswick
Coburg
Moreland
Heidelberg
Parkville
Brighton
Toorak
Williamstown
Malvern
Preston
Essendon
Collingwood
Carlton
Richmond
Hawthorn

Do all of these suburbs exist in England, US, Germany?
I'm still not sure which are tradition English names and which are German?

Hell, our 4 main streets of our CBD are King St, William St, Queen St, Elisabeth St!
Apron strings anyone?

edited in blue to show states in the US where these cities are located.

Note that I did not include alternate spellings because there are so many.

Well, then....

I've heard of several of the Brunswicks. Heidelberg is a suburban town near Pittsburgh, Pa, where I used to live. Parkville I have never heard of, but it does sound like a genericized town for a movie. Williamstown I ave heard of in Mass and PA. Preston, ID, I think, may have been where Napoleon Dynamite was filmed or set. Pretty sure it's kind of near Idaho Falls. Richmond is the capital of Virginia, and is also a SF Bay Area city (I think one of the bigger ones that isn't SF, Oakland or San Jose, the anchor cities).

As far as Hawthorne goes, if you spell it with a silent "e" at the end, you have a city in L.A. County.

RE: Common Suburb names
We have actual whole towns called Brighton, Preston and (I think) Malvern in The UK. If Malvern isn't a town, it's a region and large hill range.

Never heard of any of the others here, but most of them sound English so they probably do exist here somewhere. (apart from Heidelberg and Toorak, which sound German and indigenous respectively).

"Ironically like the nativist far-Right, which despises multiculturalism, but benefits from its ideas of difference to scapegoat the other and to promote its own white identity politics; these postmodernists, leftists, feminists and liberals also use multiculturalism, to side with the oppressor, by demanding respect and tolerance for oppression characterised as 'difference', no matter how intolerable."

I graduated from Parkville Senior High School in Parkville, Maryland. There is a Parkville, Pennsylvania less than an hour from me now.

Appreciate me or I will send The Valkyrie to get you all!! Muhahahah!

RE: Common Suburb names
Texas is funny. It doesn't have the ability to think up new names for towns and streets. A good portion of our central area was settled by Germans so we have things like Fredericksburg, Stan Schlueter, and Schlitterbahn (that one is a water park in New Braunfels) then around the state we have cities named London, Paris, Scotland, etc. Our street names are all named after; horse equipment, birds, flowers, or Texas heroes. We have a lot of cities named after said heroes so you can be on Austin St Houston or Houston St Dallas... we are not good with names.

Side note both of my sisters were born in Heidelberg Germany XD

Coburg is a city in northern bavaria, the Brunswicks and New Brunswicks are possibly derived from the northern German city of Braunschweig.
