Blimey, there are too many in England to mention. I lived for a while near the Welsh border and pronouncing some of the place names there was a nightmare, but just funny ones in UK.....there are too many, even within my county.....I don't like driving through a place called Catsgore (where there is always, as the name suggests; roadkill). My dog likes Piddle Valley, there is a well known school called Sexey School, which happens to be opposite a road called Lover's Lane, and all though the town name is not too funny, the part of the town it is in is called Lusty. There are the Camels: Queen Camel, West Camel..doubly funny because they have hump back prefab houses which look like camels, Cheddare Gorge (the home of the cheese, and when we vist DH indeed gorges on cheddar) and of course or main town is called Bath!

Andy, would you believe that coxsackie is also another name for a horrible virus? It's also known as hoof, foot, and mouth disease--I'm sure that there is NO correlation wth the city in NY!!!!! :)

In Texas, there is also a Woman Hollering Creek (many unconfirmed legends exist as to why it was named that in the first place) and Macho Creek near San Antonio. But it's not named that because it's "strong and vibrant" but has it's origin in the Spanish word "macho" which means a "gelded mule". Ouch!!

Middie, I found one for you in Ohio; it's called Knockemstiff, Ohio. It has quite a history.
