    Right here in Lancaster County, PA we have Intercourse and Bird-In-Hand. In neighboring Berks County there is Virginville.

    What do you have in your neck of the woods? Real towns only.

    Western Washington is full of cities with regional Native American names. The names themselves aren't in any way humorous, but hearing people not local to the region trying to pronounce them is hilarious.

    I'm currently working in Quebec and just noticed there is a town called:

    "Saint-Louis-du-Ha! Ha!"

    Great Snoring in Norfolk. Sums the county up nicely.

    I know New Mexico has some unique names but at the moment only Truth Or Consequences comes to mind.

    My hometown is Pahrump, Nevada. It gets a funny look from anyone who's never heard of it.

    I don't know the significance of the word '****' in America but it has quite a coarse meaning in the UK. I once lived fairly close to that village in The Shetland Islands. It could have well have been named after me. :cry: There was another by the same name in Orkney, a few hours sail away.

    Probably Celtic names that meant something else.
