Charlotte, Augusta, Caroline, and Louisa, are all named after members of the successive royal families. Berkeley, Culpeper, Dinwiddie, Fauquier, and Botetourt, were so called in compliment to the Colonial Governors of those names.--Goochland was also named in honor of Gov. Gooch. Shenandoah was likewise first called after Governor Dunmore, but the name was changed after Dunmore became the enemy of the Colony.
