Well, the name is still weird. afaik there's nowhere in Sweden called Lindström. It's not a place-name, it's a family name!

Lindström was named for Daniel Lindström, an early settlor. Yes, it's a personal name utilized as a place name. Not uncommon: Bismarck, Washington, Charlotte.

I know, There's quite a few places named for people around Sweden. But never just the surname on its own afaik. Might have something to do with pretty much all Swedes having -sson names up until the 1800s...

The water tower of Malmö would fit by its design better to Ängelholm or Roswell.
