Well in my case i name the places of my world "Divero" mostly straight forward, there is a continent with the shape of a dragon so it is called Nogardrios wich is something like "Im a Dragon" in spanish and spelled backwards. There is a continent which has the shape of a dagger and is called Agad, again dagger in spanish and spelled backwards. XD
When the names dont like me i just add some "t", "r"; "th", so they sound a little more mysterious.
For natural features, towns and the like i just take the logical approach, if its in a pine forest its called evergreen and the like.
Of course, many cultures have their own languages so the places still have names like that but in their native language, or with the names of their heroes or gods.
