This is even more out of town than Alaska, but fifteen of the moons of
Uranus are named Miranda, Ariel, Caliban, Sycorax, Titania, Oberon,
Puck, Cordelia, Ophelia, Bianca, Cressida, Desdemona, Juliet, Portia,
and Rosalind.

(I know we were talking about places named after Shakespeare himself,
but I couldn't resist this... especially with the memory of the BBC's
excellent documentary series "The Planets" fresh in my mind)

Hail SHAKSPERians, the city of Chihuahua, Mexico has a large industrial
complex in the north end. Enter from Avenida Vallarta (Mex #45) on
Cervantes.  You then come to a Y-junction presided over by a statue of
Don Quixote.

Go right on Shakespeare or left on Tolstoy. Either way you end up on
Rudyard Kipling.
