Greek woman from Smyrna, an important Aegean coastal town, today in Turkey. Many locales were named after Smyrna, notably in the USA. There's a "Smyrna" in the states of California, Delaware, Georgia, Maine, Michigan, North-Carolina & South-Carolina, Tennessee ... and two of them in New York. The original town itself cannot be called "Smyrna" however. The Turks insist that "Izmir", the Turkish mispronunciation of its name, must instead be used in all languages.
