Reading is named after the act of interpreting written words. And, Hull is named after the main part of a ship.

So is it only Port Vale. Or are we looking at clubs that don't play in relation to their geography. E.g. QPR is in Shepherd's Bush

No, I think Port Vale may be the only one that's valid, Queens Park is in West London so that isn't really an answer to the original question!

Crystal Palace

Took the name from the exhibition centre. Crystal Palace became a place name after the exhibition centre was destroyed. Used to be called Sydenham’s Hill or something like that beforehand.

Great shout @Teasmaid.....but....

Crystal Palace Football Club
is a professional football club based in Selhurst, South London, England. They currently compete in the Premier League, the highest level of English football. The club play their home matches at Selhurst Park.

The origins of the club can be traced as far back as 1854, when the Crystal Palace Exhibition building had been relocated from Hyde Park, London and rebuilt in an area of South London next to Sydenham Hill. This area was renamed Crystal Palace which included the Crystal Palace Park that surrounded the site where various sports facilities were built. It was here that the earliest known Crystal Palace team first played as an amateur outfit in 1861. They competed in the first ever FA Cup competition in 1871–72, reaching the semi-finals where they lost to the Royal Engineers. In 1895, the Crystal Palace Company who owned the Palace building began hosting the FA Cup Final inside its grounds. It was ten years later that the owners decided to form a new professional Palace club to play at the Cup Final venue. They stayed here until 1915, when the club were forced to leave due to the outbreak of the First World War. In 1924, they moved to their current home at Selhurst Park.
