Canadian nominations:

Banff - (in Alberta)

Guelph - (in Ontario)

Apto - (also in Ontario) Apto's not really a city, though...I think it has a population of less than 10 people, but it does have a couple of road signs.

Moosenee

Blind River

Moosejaw

Capuscasing

If we're going to allow places like Apto (population: 10 - what was the Hee-Haw response? c'mon, don't pretend you don't know), I think Canada may face some stiff competition from Australia. And Wales. Heck, even the good ol' US of A. Not to mention England ...

Hey, Bill, that ain't fair. Unless I know what Indian names mean, I'm not going to badmouth those. We have enough English names to choose from.

'Boring' in Oregon was named after an early settler.

The sun often shines on 'Cape Foulweather', Oregon. (Not actually a town, though)

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.

I'm BAAAA-aaack!
Truth or Consequences changed their name ( I don't remember the former name) on a dare from the old quiz show by the same title. I think that was still in the days of radio. The earlier TV show hosted by Bob barker may have been responsible. Yup! Crazy name.

How about:
Bug Tussle OK (just south of Muskogee)
Bumble Bee TX
Winona AZ
Swindletown LA
Wee Wah NSW OZ
Weedpatch CA
Pumpkin Center CA
Button Willow CA
Woody CA
Hayfork CA
Whisky Flat CA
Hangtown (now Placerville) CA
Uncle Sam (now Kelseyville) CA

One of the weirdest places I've ever been in is California City. That sounds like an appropriate enough name, doesn't it? It's located just a little northeast of Mojave CA. There are miles of streets and curbs, sidewalks, street signs and other infra-structure but no houses! Well actually there are a few, built miles apart. There are even a few stores sprinkled here and there. I think it was the Dell-Webb Corp. that planned and sold the project to investors but there was a question of fraud and corruptions and the project was stopped and never resumed (ca 1950's).

and there is always Podunk MA!

No dare involved. I remember when the New Mexico town renamed iself. Here is what Wikipedia says:
"Originally called "Hot Springs", it took the name of a popular radio program in 1950, when Truth or Consequences host Ralph Edwards announced that he would do the program from the first town that renamed itself after the show. Ralph Edwards came to the town during the first weekend of May for the next fifty years."

Intercourse, (communion) Pennsylvania and Amity,(peace) Oregon named themselves in hopes of reducing the current rancor.

A "lick", of course, is a place of naturally occurring minerals, especially salt.

There is a small settlement north of Sydney (Oz not Canada or anywhere else) named "The Letter A" - so called, I believe, because the 3 roads that make up the place look like the letter A from the air.

There are probably some doozies in Oz but at present I am suffering from The Dreaded Lurgy with accompanying lethargy, so it may take a while to look them up.

But of what use is knowing all these strange town names?

Some years back, at the WVA Festival at Winfield, Kansas, a band of loonies in one camp were entertaining some "foreign visitors" (rumor has it that they were Brits?) and started a game of naming strange Kansas places. The end result was the assigning of "camp names" consisting of first and last names which had to be Kansas towns to each of the "members" of the campground.

The "tradition" has continued for several years, but by the time we became acquainted with this particlar camp, most of the well-known names were of course taken, so it was a rather difficult task to find good ones we were willing to use, and extensive debate ensued over whether we could use names of towns that once existed but were no longer on the common maps; but success was finally achieved, after I ran the DeLorme Atlas and Kansas Gazeteer index through the scanner, OCR'd, deleted streams and rivers, and made a scholarly presentation to the adjudicating officials of the camp.

There were numerous obvious "good" names, but it didn't take long to use 'em all up.

Map makers will sometimes include a non-existent place name or village name in an obscure location as a means of detecting copyright infringement. In central California where I grew up there is a little town named Richgrove on the Poterville highway. The old Chevron road map shows another small village just north of it named Orris but Orris does not exist nor did it ever exist and yet other tiny communities in the area go unrecognized such as Columbine CA. Orris may not be a silly name per se, but silly it is!

I had no trouble with the French, Italian, and German, and I could even handle Russian names like baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky, cellist Mstislav Rostropovich, and conductor Gennady Rozhdestvensky without chipping a tooth.

I understand the Margaret Thatcher's nickname in certain circles was "Daggers," which is two stops past Barking.

There's a lake in Massachusetts (and possibly a town nearby) named Charchoggagogmanchoggagogcharbunagungamog, which was literally a peace treaty and place name at once, meaning "you fish your side, we fish our side, no one fish the middle".

And all American Indian place names translate as "big river," (except those that don't, like "Iowa," which means "us" or "here").

And I recall seeing it on TV when Truth or Consequences changed its name. That does make me old, don't it?

Entering Marion.

Every year I drive out to Cape Cod for the last part of June.
Leave the city by ten and you're there in the late afternoon.
On the way there's a village called Marion that you pass through.
The first time I approached it, I'll always remember the sign that came into view.
It said, "Entering Marion."
And I thought, "What a fun little sign!"
But the feeling of entering Marion
Had a kick that was hard to define...
A rapturous rush, a physical flush,
Chills up and down the spine.
For the few minutes I was in Marion
All Massachusetts was mine.

(spoken) Well, it got to be kind of an annual thing...the event that would start each vacation off with a bang!

Then one year--who knows why?--I decided to try a new route.
So I got out my map and I traced one I thought was a beaut.
After driving all morning, I came to the top of a hill,
Where a sign stood before me that promised a new kind of thrill.

It said, "Entering Beverly,"
Which was lovely and not overbuilt.
And the pleasure of entering Beverly
Far outweighed any feelings of guilt.
I could say I'm contrite but it wouldn't be right,
For the truth is that later that day,
I found myself entering Sharon.
It was there. So was I. We enjoyed it. Hey, what can I say?

By the next year I'd try any route, just for novelty's sake.
I was cursed with a thirst that no single township could slake.
Oh, at the wheel I looked calm but inside I was running amok,
When a sign in the road dead ahead sent me straight into shock:

"Entering Lawrence."
My God! I was out of control.
And I'd no sooner finished with Lawrence
Than Boom! I was entering Lowell.
Then I backtracked and re-entered Lawrence,
Then Quincy and Norton as well.
Around midnight I pulled into Athol
And flopped in a fleabag motel.

I slept fitfully in my clothing
And awoke in a pool of sweat and self-loathing.
Lying there, feeling lower than carrion,
A name came clear as a clarion.
I jumped in my car
And before very far--

I was entering Marion.
How totally, wonderfully great!
How grand to be entering Marion
After tramping all over the state.
Every sleaze-bucket burb,
Every tryst by the curb
Had really just helped me to find
I'm happiest entering Marion.
I guess I'm the Marion kind.
Oh yes, I'm the Marion kind.

There's a town on North Island, New Zealand called Mere Mere, prounounced may ray may ray. They predictably put a sign underneath it at the beginning of December, that just says 'Christmas'.

Odd, because it actually means 'weapon' or 'the planet Venus'...

Then there's Whana Whana - to bend backwards and forwards.

Urupukapuka - grove of rangiora shrubs. Rangiora revels in the latin name of Brachyglottis Purpurea

The oddest New Zealand name I've found today is 'Mititai'. Miti - to lick and Tai - the coast.

And to drag this kicking and screaming into the music section - Harihari - a song to make people pull together in unison.

Wyre Piddle in Worcestershire.

There was a Cornish opencast clay quarry near St Austell once, and the two remaining cottages carry its name.....

Greensplat.

Would they be Number One Greensplat and Number Two Greensplat, then, or is that just too far?

Regarding Cholmondeley/Chumley, LTC Rolt, in his book 'Narrowboat'about his pioneering 'leisure'voyages on the British Canals, reports being taken in by this unexpected pronunciation. A short distance away he came across a village called Cholmondeston and confidently rendered it as 'Chumston' to the bemused locals, only to be told that the correct pronunciation was 'Cholmondesterton'.
Cheshire abounds with unusual place-names, of course. My favourite is the village four miles from Nantwich which still retains its Roman name, the melodious Aston-Juxta-Mondrum. I can't recall ever visiting the place. I hope it's as lovely as its name.

Down in Coober Pedy, eating Goober Peas....

Some years ago I drove to the Burdekin Lodge (Queensland) for the Aust Archaelogy Assoc conference and was surpised to see a sign at a creek crossing that said
"Two Creek Creek No, 1"

And, blow me down, a few km further south was another sign at a creek crossing that said
"Two Creek Creek No. 2"

A few years earlier Suzette, Mike visited me in Kakadu (Northern Territory) and I was showing them the sights. These iincluded Jim Jim Falls, which can be spectacular, and are often referred to by locals as "Jim Jim". The Australian penchant for double-barrelled names got us to think about writing a song but we never got much further than

"You can call Wagga Wagga Wagga,
but you can't call Jim Jim Jim.

Chew Magna is a Somerset village near me. I once drove through Ae, in Scotland, which is odd but not that silly.

May I recommend "The Meaning of Liff" by Douglas "Hitchhiker" Adams and John Lloyd (producer of Blackadder). It's a small dictionary-style book that takes placenames and gives them suitable definitions. It appears to be online though I don't know how legit that is.

I like
ABILENE (adj.) Descriptive of the pleasing coolness on the reverse side of the pillow.
GOOSNARGH (n.) Something left over from preparing or eating a meal, which you store in the fridge despite the fact that you know full well you will never ever use it.
SCRABSTER (n.) One of those dogs which has it off on your leg during tea.
ULLAPOOL (n.) The spittle which builds up on the floor of the Royal Opera House.
WIMBLEDON (n.) That last drop which, no matter how much you shake it, always goes down your trouser leg.

A Mudcat-relevant example:
MELLON UDRIGLE (n.) The ghastly sound made by traditional folksingers. (It is, like the others, a real place.)

"Innaloo" and "Upper Swan" reminded me of "Pakenham Upper", which still provokes coarse responses.

"Bookem" is a one-horse town noted for its energetic cop with the radar; that's exactly what he does. "Wait a while" and "Come by chance" should also get a guernsey here, although none of the places I've mentioned is, by any stretch of the imagination, a "city".

Wyre Piddle - was for many years just called Wyre until the petrol station decided they could sell more by putting up a sign harking back to pre-Victorian prudishness. "Wyre Piddle filling station". Piddle means marsh or shallow water cf puddle. There was an unsuccessful winery in North Piddle not far away - Chateau Piddle was memorable but not saleable. And since the 60's I have been looking for an area called Piddle in the Hole near Bromyard - one of those cartographers ghosts I now realise - proving they have a sense of humour.

Near where I now live there is a village called Nympsfield and I swear onother roadsign has only appeared in the last 10 years there. For a hamlet rejoicing in the name Cockadilly not a mile way. In fact years ago I sent a postcard back to work saying "camping in Nympsfield - 'scuse shaky handwriting".


The early episodes of Cagney & Lacey used an intro sequence that finished with a shot of a bridge that had a sign on it (and was it real?) that said "entering Queens"

Loved the song.......

Yes, "Entering Queens" is a real sign. The Borough of Queens, or Queens County, is part of New York City. It's next to Kings County, which is more commonly known as Brooklyn. The names commemorate the British King and Queen who were ruling when the counties were founded back in the days when we were a British colony. Queens is where you can find the town of Flushing.

I sent out a series of post cards addressed to my self to get cancellations from towns that bore my names, Thomas, Franklin, Carter and I did another series on US towns that were named after the planets.
I'll try to find the cards but the ones I remember were Mercury, Jupiter FL, Earth, Mars, Moon. A US Postal Zip guide would give you the info. I have done this as gifts for other folks, provided I could locate a city or cities that included their name(s). It's a fun thing to do - different - and it's fun to look forward to getting some rather unique cancellations. Send a Self Addressed post card to Tombstone AZ with a note asking for their special cancellation and see what you get!

I lived in St. Ippolits once.

My favourites though are 'Turnham Green' (in London) and 'Much Hadham' in Essex.

Runners up are 'Messing' and 'Mucking' both in Essex. The 'ing' ending is Saxon for family or people thus Barking derived it's name from 'Boerca's people'

Then there are names which just sound funny like 'Stanstead Mountfitchet' or 'Stapleford Tawney' or 'Mountnessing Roding'

I guess it's obvious from this post that I lived in Essex for quite a while.

Don't Call Wagga Wagga Wagga

© Greg Champion/Jim Haynes
(Warner/Chappel Music Australia)

This version first released on the album Stand Back Australia

Now once I met Ted Egan legend bushman that he is
a lotta folks they know their Outback well, and Ted he sure knows his
he knows those towns with funny names, the ones that make you laugh
and when it comes to the double names, he says "ya don't do things by
half", and

Chorus 1
Ya don't call Kurri Kurri Kurri
and ya don't call Gin Gin Gin
ya don't call Mooney Mooney Mooney
and ya don't call Kin Kin Kin
ya never call Pindi Pindi Pindi
and ya don't call Grong Grong Grong
and ya don't call Wagga Wagga Wagga no sir
callin' Wagga Wagga Wagga is wrong

It's Lang Lang and it's Ki Ki Wangi Wangi and Woy Woy
and if ya call Tumbi Umbi Tumbi, well that proves your a silly boy
Cocklebiddy isn't Cockle, Duckinwilla isn't Duck
Burpengary isn't Burpen, Muckadilla isn't Muck
Uranquinty isn't Uran, and Petrie isn't Pee
you'd look pretty silly callin' Liili Pilli Lilli and Wee Waa isn't Wee,
and

Chorus 2
Ya don't call Walla Walla Walla
and ya don't call Curl Curl Curl
ya don't call Mitta Mitta Mitta
and ya don't call Wool Wool Wool
ya never call Pura Pura Pura
and ya don't call Bong Bong Bong
and ya don't call Wagga Wagga Wagga no sir
callin' Wagga Wagga Wagga is wrong

It's Terrigal not Terry, and Stanthorpe isn't Stan
Peterborough isn't Peter, Dandaragan isn't Dan
Kenebri's not Kenny, Jackadgery isn't Jack
never ever call Jimboomba Jim and Macksville isn't Mack
so now you'll all remember Ted Egan's good advice
some words are so fair dinkum that you have to use 'em twice, and

REPEAT CHORUS 1

Hope this is of some use to you
