Lots of other Mormon place names around the US.
Mormon Coulee, in La Crosse, WI. From when members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints were sent up the Black River in Wisconsin in the 1840s to procure lumber for the Nauvoo Temple. (Coulee is another word for creek)https://lacrossetribune.com/special-section/askthetrib/ask-the-tribune-mormons-settled-in-la-crosse-in/article_154798b7-b600-5768-9752-184a3c1d3dae.html
Mormon Tavern, El Dorado Hills, CA.
Sadly, this was demolished to widen US 50 into a freeway...https://noehill.com/eldorado/cal0699.asphttps://www.mtdemocrat.com/uncategorized/mormon-tavern/https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mormon_Tavern,_California
El Dorado Hills is a few miles down the stagecoach route over the Sierra from Colma, where early members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints publicized the discovery of gold in 1848.
In 1848 or 1849, the Mormon Tavern, offering rough hospitality for gold seekers, was built by a Mormon named Morgan"https://www.edhhistory.org/clarksville-history.html
Nearby are also
Mormon Island Cemeteryhttps://goo.gl/maps/ThJJ89654FHfzqnYA
And Nevada's Mormon Mountains.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mormon_Mountains
I'm sure there are plenty more.
The other night I was talking to a neighbor, a somewhat reluctant lifetime member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
I mentioned to him, "Now, you're a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, right? Have you ever..."
To which he replied "No, I'm a Mormon, and I have never..."
So, just another way it can backfire. Adherents who are unhappy with the church's current leadership direction can call themselves "Mormons" instead...
