Here are some good ones:North, SCPumpkintown, SC (good to sub in the song "Funkytown")and as a Hoosier, here are some from there:Buddah, IN (unincorporated outside of Bedford. Probably not any Buddhists there, but I digress)Needmore, IN -- which is only funny because of the school there called "Needmore School" I'm not kidding.and then all of the towns/schools with French spelling, which we Hoosiers like to mispronounce (why add the extra letters if you aren't going to say them?):La Fontaine (la fountain)Versailles (ver-SAILS)Terre Haute (terra hote)Notre Dame (Noter Dame)
Due West and Six-Mile are two of my favorites.Along Annie's line: there's a town in Virginia called Buena Vista-- yes, pronounced "Byoo-nah Vista".
A couple of my favorites here in Arkansas are Rooster's Poot and Toad Suck.Only in the south ...
"Ninety-Six" is a winner. what kind of a town name is that?
I personally enjoy Big Lick, NC.
We've got some winning names up here in PA - Intercourse, Bareville and Blue Ball come to mind immediately - all in very conservative Amish country! Thanks for your visit to my blog. A little extra running encouragement definitely helps. :)Jennifer
Oh, girl. I live in Alabama. There are plenty of good names.Slapout, AL (because it's "slap out in the middle of nowhere" - yes, I'm serious)Palmer, AL and Remlap, AL - which were founded by brothers. Remlap is Palmer backwards.Pineapple, ALFlorala, AL (on the Florida-Alabama border. Original, huh?)Waterloo, AL (like Napoleon)The list can go on and on.
