Different placenames EU/US -what?

#1 Posted by Spacemonger (79 posts) -

Why does the European (English language version) and American versions have different names for several locations? 
American - European:  
Forest/Fire/etc. Realm -  Forest/Fire/etc. Land
Aboda Village - Outset Village 
Whittleton - Mayscore 
Rabbitland Rescue - Rabbit Haven 
Forest Sanctuary - Woodland Sanctuary 
Forest Temple - Wooded Temple 
Wellspring Station - Icy Spring 
Snow Sanctuary - Snowfall Sanctuary 
Snow Temple - Blizzard Temple 
 I'm sure there's more, but thats how far i've gotten in the game. 
I can see no reason for choosing to have different names in the same language, can anyone else?
