The town I grew up in, Malden, Massachusettes, was named after the Maldon in England. Maldon is about 50 north miles of New Malden and Old Malden in Essex, England. From Wikipedia: [Malden, Massachusettes] was incorporated as a separate town in 1649. The name Malden was selected by Joseph Hills, an early settler and landholder, and was named after Maldon, England.

Also Malden Avenue, Malden Station Apartments, and a number of other streets in Fullerton, California, were named after the city and street names in Malden, Massachusettes. Fullerton, California, was founded by the Amerige Brothers who traveled to Fullerton from Malden, Massachusettes, on a duck hunting vacation.

From Wikipedia: In 1886 while in the area on a duck hunting vacation, Malden brothers George and Edward Amerige, heard rumors that the California Central Railroad, a subsidiary of the Santa Fe Railway, was looking for land. Sensing opportunity, they arranged to buy 430 acres (1.7 km2) north of Anaheim for approximately $68,000. ... They then began negotiations with George H. Fullerton, president of the Pacific Land and Improvement Company, also a Santa Fe subsidiary. They offered free right-of-way and half interest in the land to the railroad if Fullerton's survey were revised to include the proposed town site, and on July 5, 1887 Edward Amerige formally staked his claim at what is now the intersection of Harbor Boulevard and Commonwealth Avenue.
