We have town named Doodstil, Dorst and Biggenkerke.
Respectively meaning Deadquiet, Thirst and Porkville...

Porkville? That beats the heck out of Yermo, Its name is derived from the Spanish word for wilderness.

Speaking of odd place names, I have a shipmate from my first boat who lives in Weed, California, up near Mt. Shasta (and yes, I think he does...). And south of Bakersfield are two towns called Weedpatch and Pumpkin Center. I've had lunch in all three.

Not far from here. There is also Cool, California.. Rough N Ready California
Timbuktu California, and an almost town called Maybe, California(back in frontier days they probably were not sure if it was nevada or california)
of course Azusa(everything from A-Z in the USA)Paradise(named after the Pair-O-Dice Saloon)... ah the list goes on.

How about a place name that will get an immature giggle? This place isn't far from where I live :)

The first one is an elusive Seti toaster, the second is a games hand grip.
