Places With Interesting Names

I heard in a documentary of a place called Happy, TX and I thought this was an interesting name for a city. So of course I Googled places in the USA with interesting names. There’s some doozies out there! It makes me wonder what these people were thinking when they named them. Did they not think that the names would stick? Is there a way to rename a city? Can you take a vote about that?

Here’s a list of interesting names of places I thought you would like. I got it from http://www.accuracyproject.org/towns.html
