Funny town names

I don't know if this really belongs under games, so mods - if it needs to be moved, I understand.


Name towns with funny names. For example

No Name, CO

Re: Funny town names

We have a town in Ireland in a county called Tipperary called OOLA.

Americans especially refer to it as 'double O LA!'

Sorry ladies!!

Re: Funny town names

You have -in USA- an State called "Kansas"... "cansas", in Spanish is "(you) get tired"...

I, I am sorrounded of "village"...

Vilanova (is mine!): new village
Vilafranca: frank village
Viladellops: wolves' village
Viladecans: dogs' village
Vilarodona: circle village

...and more!
Don't have it anyone imagination : ( village + first word they find at diccionary...
