The name has been used for over 150 years. If that's a bit ripoff-ish, then so is the Thames River, Lambeth, Windsor, Cambridge, York, New York, Yorktown, Adelaide, Middlesex, etc. It's what British settlers did when immigrating to the new world.

If London Ont were in England right now, it would be the 10th largest metro area. Not exactly a small English city.
