We're all familiar with Burton upon Trent right here next to the good old River Trent, in Staffordshire, right? But have you ever wondered how many other Burton's there are in the world and how they match up?
Blowing our own trumpet, we're the only one that brews the best beer in the world and of course, home to the famous Marmite yeast spread. But there must be others who share our name if not out great exports?
And how do they match up with our Burton with a population of almost 80,000, a football team on the rise that right in the heart of the beautiful National Forest?
So we've compiled a list of what we believe to be every place named Burton around the globe to see how they compare to our wonderful town – and some of them may surprise you. There are 20 Burton's in America alone.
Some cities which share our name may be bigger, but can they beat our beer? Mayor Simon Gaskin certainly doesn't think so…
Speaking to the Burton Mail, he said: "As the brewing capital of the world, everyone loves our Burton for its aroma, good taste and all-round feel good factor.
"It's not like the Marmite we produce, everybody just loves it!"
So here are a few of the other Burtons in the world:
Burton, Georgia, USA: The town that lies underwater
Did you know that there was a Burton in America that is now covered by a lake? Burton, Georgia, was once a mighty town famous for "gold-rushing", where many would flock to the town to hunt for gold.
A railway company went on to buy the whole town and decided to close the dam. Before long, the town of Burton became completely submerged underwater, and is now called Lake Burton.
Back here in Burton-on-Trent, The Washlands might be known for flooding and the Trent bursts its banks - but so far the ensure town has gone underwater - not even in the big flood of 2000!
Burton, Michigan, USA
Burton is the second largest city in Genessee County in the state of Michigan, with a population of 29,999.
Amber Burton, a nurse from the city, told us all about her city in the States - which some Americans call "Burtucky".
The 27-year-old said: "I know you guys have a few Burtons in England! It's probably a lot better than the Burton here. It's cool having the last name of such a popular town/city name though.
"The weather in Michigan is very 'bi-polar'. In one day we could go from having the heat turned on to having the air conditioning on! We get a lot of snow when it's winter too."
And just like our very own Burton, Burton in Michigan is close to a place called Foremark.
Amber said: "My favourite little place here would be For-Mar. It's this gorgeous nature preserve filled with deer, turkeys, beavers, turtles, fish, and so many other wildlife! You can walk around on the trails in the woods and get lost for hours.
"We're kind of a city so it's nice to get away from all the hustle and bustle for a change. We also have very beautiful trees that change colours in the fall, so it's nice to go driving around to see them.
"There's also a planetarium, museum, theatre, and library here that are all worth a look.
"We do have high crime rates though because we're so close to Flint. There are good and bad places in our little town.
"There's also been a lot of girls going missing. We have high rates of sex trafficking too."
Burton-on-Trent can, of course, boast an impressive library and the Brewhouse arts centre, where many productions are staged.

A potted history of our Burton-on-Trent
Over time, Burton has seen the town's history develop from a monk's brewing efforts in a small monastery to a worldwide phenomenon, exporting beer to countries such as India and Russia to name but a few.
The town's brewing history dates all the way back to the 11th century, when monks began brewing under the guidance of the Earl of Mercia, who founded Burton Abbey.
The key to Burton's brewing success is the quality of the water surrounding the town - the hills contain water with minerals which helps to preserve beer for longer, allowing us to export beer all over the world.
Burton Bridge was also the site of two battles, in 1322 when Edward II defeated the rebel Earl of Lancaster and 1643 when royalists captured the town during the First English Civil War.
William Lord Paget and his descendants were responsible for extending the manor house within the abbey grounds and facilitating the extension of the River Trent Navigation to Burton. Burton grew into a busy market town by the early modern period.
