Odd and Unusual Place Names

Here is a list of interesting-sounding place names that have been collected over several years:

These place names were selected as some of them sounded unusual, some sounded interesting, some just sounded funny and some a little rude. It is up to you to decide which is which!

This list is original. An earlier, shorter version of it appeared on another web site of mine. Other combinations of names exist on other sites, but if you see this exact list somewhere else it has been copied from here! (Two names in this list have been made up, as a trap for anyone thinking of copying it!)
