    Lasso tool in map can sometimes pick locations outside of lasso boundary

      After creating a point layer map and linking the lat/long coordinates to the city name, I'm finding for example that when I select the coordinates to lasso around Paris, France, I see that Paris, Texas in the US also gets selected on the map, even though that city is outside the lasso selection I made.


      So it seems to me that the lasso selection doesn't go by the lat/long coordinates, but rather will select all cities that SHARE the same name as those selected within the lasso. This doesn't seem ideal as there are several cities all over the world that have the same name. I wonder if anyone has any insight or if there is something additional I can do to correct this on my maps?
