Bellingham Washington 

Capt. George Vancouver first visited what is now Western Washington during his exploration of Puget Sound in 1792,  but Capt. Vancouver never actually visited Bellingham bay himself.    Bellingham Washington Water Sculpture -

 While stopping over in nearby Birch Bay Captain Vancouver sent out his men in smaller boats to explore nearby waterways  & coastline. Their discoveries were then charted and given names--- Captain Vancouver chose to honor his friend Sir William Bellingham by naming a nearby bay after him. In later years when the small but very nearby cities of Fairhaven, Whatcom, Sehome chose to join into one city they decided on the name "Bellingham".
