Could swear I responded to this.

Utopia does in fact come from the term "No Place" - οὐ ("not") and τόπος ("place"). It comes from a book from 1551. (Thomas More)

But the good place would actually have been eutopia, from the Greek εὖ ("good" or "well"). It was in fact an error to refer to the eu form, and was further cemented when the term dystopia was introduced in 1844.
