    Default 93 Weird, Funny, and Ridiculous City Names discussion

    This is a discussion thread for the following file:

    93 Weird, Funny, and Ridiculous City Names

    With names such as, "Rough and Ready," "Moron," "Crackpot," "Waterproof," "Christmas," "Santa Claus," "Experiment," "French Lick," "What Cheer," "Frankenstein," "Success," "Ship Bottom," "Truth or Consequences," "Climax," "Hooker," "Intercourse," "Ninety-Six" and "Notrees," this file has a collection of 93 cities/towns (mostly in America) which have either funny, weird, or ridiculous names. I will update this file, adding place names from Europe, Asia, Africa, and N+S America.

    Intercourse, Pennsylvania is an unincorporated village in Leacock Township, Lancaster County in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania. The village is located within the 17534 ZIP code, 717 area code, and 768 local phone code.

    As with the nearby town of Paradise, Pennsylvania, Intercourse is a popular site for tourists on account of its name, which in modern times has acquired sexual connotations. Sign posts for the town are frequently targeted by thieves.

    Besides its name, Intercourse is also famous for its Amish communities. For this reason the movie Witness was filmed in Intercourse and For Richer or Poorer was set there, though not filmed in Intercourse.

    Thank you both. I'll add these now, and add some more over the day.

    I don't read/speak french. Can you give me the translation for these?
    I left the ones I can't translate in the folder. Can you help?

    Elfish for my true name
    Findecáno Táralóm


    My mind works better in sentences with spaces and long paragraphs loose me sometimes cause I need to picture what is going on at the same time I am reading.

    Thank you Dom88 and Sladys. I've given credit to both of you in the file (both in the general overview and in the files themselves. Anymore you can see or suggest for V.2, please tell me. Currently, I'm still finishing up America. Any cities (not USA) would be really nice...especially Asian, African, and South American cities.

    Also,
    A problem with some of these cities is, they're often times really inappropriate (their name atleast). Should I add a seperate folder for these, or is it ok to keep them with the main bunch because they are city names?

    I think it would be OK if you make one folder with inappropriate city names so that people won't be offended by it.

    By the way, here are more city names for you.
