Texas has a lot of odd ones:
Dime Box (allegedly named for a dime box of tobacco), Angus, Mustang, Missouri City, Texas (southeast of Houston, nowhere near Missouri), Daisetta (named for the founders' wives, Daisy and Etta), Tomball (named for a guy named Thomas Ball), Palestine (Palesteen, and if you say "PaleSTINE", you will be corrected).
