    Ehh, common in all kinds of intellectual pursuits. Scientific names are another example, from biology. Eurasian brown bears, formally named Ursus arctos arctos, being my favorite (Latin for bear, then Greek for bear...and repeat). So, Netflix can be forgiven that sin. The rest, not so much...

    Not so intellectual, but if you are Dundonian it's common to hear people refer to the Dundee Law as the Law Hill (Law being a Scots word for hill).

    EEM.

    Calls to mind Torpenhow Hill in Cumbria, which can be interpreted as "Hill-hill-hill Hill."

    (That's likely not how the name is intended to be interpreted, but it is funny.)

    The names are all produced by a special agency:

    The Department of Redundancy Department.

    The same organization helps to produce the paperwork you fill out at the doctor's office and the DMV.
