If the others words/names are parts of toponymes, perhaps the explanation is not adequate, because the evolution of the toponymes often is very complicated and the final appearance of usual words in a combo is false. This is what is called popular etymology.
E. g., in Catalan, very close where I live, there is a small village named Riudeperes. The people interprets the toponyme as Riu, "river", de, "of", peres, "peaches": "peaches". But, actually, the name comes from petra and means "river of stones".
