Is it true that there is a city called Rome on every continent and if yes then where are they exactly located on every continent?

The only continent that I could find any place called Rome, outside of Europe, is North America. There are 13 cities in the United States and 4 townships with the name Rome in them.|
The Romes, in specific, are in:
Indiana (which boast Rome and Rome City)
Michigan (Rome Township)
Minnesota (Rome Township)
Pennsylvania (one city of Rome and two Rome Townships--one township in Bradford County with the city of the same name, and one township in Crawford County, on the opposite side of the state)
Wisconsin (two cities called Rome, one in Adams County, the other in Jefferson County)
The original Rome in Italy is properly spelled "Roma," so--|
Roma, Lesotho (Africa)
Roma, Queensland (Australia)
La Roma and Pto. Roma, Ecuador (South America)
Let's add Roma, Texas, USA, putting a "Roma" on each of the six inhabited continents.
If you are talking about the Italian spelling of Roma (Roma), I found these cities. So, there should be one in each continent.|
# Roma, Queensland, a town in Australia
# Puerto Roma, Ecuador, a town in Ecuador
# Roma, Botoşani, a town in Romania
# Roma, Sweden, a town in Sweden
# Roma, Texas, a town in the United States
# Roma, Lesotho, a town where the National University of Lesotho is situated
This question has been asked on other internet pages. Someone in this page says there is no Roma, Australia.
From this page it looks like Roma, Queensland is an airport, not a city.
According to what I'm reading here, there are no other continent outside of North America and Europe that one would find a place under the Anglicized name of Rome. Is that correct? |
That's my conclusion.|
