Oh, and "Y" City, Arkansas (located at a split in the road) and Splendora, Texas, which smacks of Victorian romanticism.
There was also once a Velie, Lousiana. Apparently the Velie car company, which was a division of John Deere, offered some kind of reward to any town that would rename itself "Velie", so one town did. I don't believe it exists any more; either died out or renamed again.
