Default Doublespeak

No, not the 1984 kind.
I was an English major graduating in 19#%, with a love of words.Here is a game I like to play. List persons, places or things ( you know theyre nouns per Schoolhouse Rock) that are double words. Here are a few to illustrate:
Walla Walla
Sing Sing
Yoyo
Noel Neill (I know its not a perfect match but she was for Superman)
Beri Beri
