Derby City and derby hat

Image
Has derby hat anything to do with Derby city?

Local people pronounce Derby as [da:rbee] instead of [derby] , once I said that, the Indian call centre man corrected me: "Oh, you are in derby!"
This hat was designed for Edward Coke, the younger brother of the 2nd Earl of Leicester. Leicester is very close to Derby, I wonder that the US people just mixed up these two cities.
