The name’s Middle Eastern,
There’s a Palmyra in Michigan as well, hmm, somewhere in the Thumb I think. I’m sure they were both named after Palmyra in Syria, but indirectly, because the name had been used for a village (and a “town”, which is NYish for “township”) in New York.
The ancient name was Tadmor, Aramaic for “palm tree” (it sez here).
