The reason why is because in geology, things tend to get named by the area where they are first recognized and described, or where something is so common or so well known that it is a good reference location. It is a way of saying, this stuff is like what happened at the Stromboli volcano, or this is like pahoehoe from Hawaii, and the name sticks and everybody uses it because we all understand what it means
