Malvern, Pennsylvania

No official origin to the naming of the Borough of Malvern remains, although several theories abound. The most common suggestions are Malvern Hills in Worcestershire, Great Britain and Malvern Hill in Virginia. As the Malvern in Pennsylvania is itself raised above the surrounding communities, it is possible either location in Britain or Virginia could have been the influence, but the truth is lost to history. Given that the original settlers were Welsh, Malvern is more likely named after the British location.
