Several achievements require visiting every "named location": achievements

What are the named locations in Three Horns, Tundra Express, Frostburn Canyon, Sanctuary, Opportunity, Lynchwood, The Highlands, Thousand Cuts, Wildlife Exploitation Preserve, Eridium Blight, Arid Nexus, Sawtooth Cauldron, and any other places required for their five achievements ("Arctic Explorer", "Urban Explorer", "Highlands Explorer", "Blight Explorer", and "World Traveler")?

Are any easy to miss? Which? Is there any way to easily identify remaining named locations?

No, there aren't any good indicators to named locations in-game... at least not until you discover it and the location discovery message pops up. – Mufasa Sep 20 '12 at 13:09
Well, other than looking at the world map. If an area is clouded over, there is a named location associated with that. – Finster Sep 24 '12 at 21:55

I don't know the names of the locations and honestly it doesn't matter, all that matters is completely filling out the map to every one of those areas. Go there and check your map, if any of it is blank or if there are any areas where the map outline disappears and then starts again go there and hopefully the blank spot will be filled into a named location as you go there. Also bear in mind that certain areas like Three Horns and The Highlands are actually split into two seperate areas divided by a travel marker.

Source: This was the technique I used to get all of those achievements.
