Funny Names of Cities and Towns

Yesterday I mentioned my discovery of a place in Canada named Lower Sackville.  The same day, someone informed me of a town named Glory Hole.  A few readers emailed or left me comments with a few more funny names.  In addition, I've done a little research.  I'm compiling a list of towns/cities/places with amusing names.

I'm hoping you can help me expand my list.

This is what I have so far:

Lower Sackville (also Upper and Middle Sackville)

Glory Hole

Bald Knob (Arkansas)

Dildo (in Newfoundland)

Surprise (Arizona)

Oral (South Dakota)

Intercourse (Pennsylvania)

Virginville (Pennsylvania)

Beaver Crossing (Nebraska)

Horneytown (North Carolina)

Fort Dick (California)

Timbuctoo (California)

Blue Ball (Delaware)

Kickapoo (Illinois)

Assawoman Bay (Maryland)

Twatt (Scotland)

Wetwang (England)

I'm sure you can help me come up with more?

    Oh Margaret you beat me to it! Pakenham upper always cracks me up when I drive through.
    And the rooty hill is funny because in Australia slang “root” means “sex” – or does everyone know that and I’m just the silly American ex pat who routinely (puntastic!) says embarrassing things like “I’m rooting for Federer” and then all the aussies laugh at me?

    Utah has a town called Fillmore and down the highway town called Beaver. The sign on the side of I15 used to say:
    Fillmore XXX miles
    Beaver XXX miles
    but the UHP took it down a few years ago as too many kids were pulling over the side of the freeway to get a pic with it.

  34. Amy in StL

    Hymen, SC. The best part is that although it’s still on maps; the town is no longer there. Almost like someone has already been through it…. Yeah, the joke was told every time my friend and I talked about our trip to Darlington through Hymen.
