I really enjoyed After the End, How did you come up with the names for Juneau and her tribe?

Amy Plum When Juneau's parents and their friends "escaped" to Alaska, they decided to name all of their children after the state's towns. They told the children that it bound them to the land and commemorated places which once were, but were now extinct.
