    The Worst City Names in the World

    By:tranxHDRAug 5, 2007 at 11:22 PMViews:3,271Comments:0Saved: 0

    1. Cockburn, Western Australia
    Although this name is often pronounced "Coburn" by those who stand to lose from its awfulness, who
    actually reads that when they see this word? Oh, how it burns.

    2. Twatt, Orkney, Shetland Islands, Scotland
    The Shetland Islands, pronounced "Sh[i]tland Islands" by the locals. Oh the pride...

    3. Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu, New Zealand
    Locals call this hill in Hawke's Bay "Taumata" because... Well. Just because.

    4. Muff, Ireland
    They have a town called Muff. Har har har.

    5. Looneyville, Texas, United States
    Little Looneyville was named for storekeeper John Looney in the early 1870s. But who gives a sh[i]t. This
    is a hilarious name for a town in the state that brought us Dallas, the Bush Twins and Waco. How awkward must that be when you go to college? "Hey guys, my name's Johnny and I'm from Looneyville!"

    6. Titty Hill, Sussex, England
    Falling squarely into the extensive Stupid Place Names From England category, Titty Hill is probably
    located just north of...

    7. Thong, Kent, England
    Which actually is south-east of...

    8. Gravesend, Kent, England
    Oh, come on, England. Graves End? What a nasty, depressing little name. You could have at least gone all
    the way with this one and called it Corpse Feet.

    9. Wetwang, Yorkshire... yep! England again!
    Okay, so I'll cut England some slack. It's an old country. You know, if the United States is Google, then
    England is IBM. Their country is older than freakin dirt. They can't be blamed for having names that sound
    funny in 2007. But this is kind of ridiculous. Wetwang? I'm surprised they don't have towns called Squishy
    Vagina or Infected Scrotum.

    10. Spread Eagle, Wisconsin
    If I were mayor of Spread Eagle, I'd be making diplomatic advances towards the city leaders over in
    Wetwang to form a Sister-City relationship. Or maybe more of a Platonic-Friends-City relationship. After
    that, we'd just take thing slow and see what happened.

    11. Bald Knob, Arkansas, United States
    Well, I guess it's better than Hairy Knob. I assume England already has that one covered.

    12. Cockup, Cumbria, England
    Cumbria is a county in the very north-west of England. What the backwoods of Alabama are to America is
    what Cumbria is to Britain. They talk funny up there. Thus, it isn't thoroughly surprising that they have a
    town called Cockup. What do you call someone from this place? A Cockupper? Cockupeleite?
    Cockuppian? Cockupican?

    13. Whiskey Dick Mountain, Washington State, United States
    As hard as America tries, it can't compete with Britain's high standards. This was a good effort, though.
    Well done, Washington.

    14. Hookersville, West Virginia
    Undoubtedly named before "hooker" meant "prostitute who picks men up on street corners," Hookersville
    combines two crimes of place-naming. One, a dirty sounding adjective (they couldn't have chosen
    "Pleasant"? "Sunny"? "Happy"?) And two, they added "ville" to the end of the town's name. Affixing
    "ville" to the end of a town's name is like dressing your silly little dog in a cardigan and letting him carry his
    leash around in his mouth. It just makes the poor animal look stupid.

    15. Hell, Michigan, United States
    The people in this town at least seem to have a good sense of humor about their home's unfortunate name.
    Although, I'm sure there's some midwestern idiots in Hell who get all offended and defensive when the
    town shows up on lists like this. I'm looking forward to reading their insightful emails and comments.

    16. Toad Suck, Arkansas, United States
    So that's what they do down in the big AR.

    17. Middelfart, Denmark
    I guess it's not so funny to them, but how do we know that "Seattle" doesn't mean "Big Fat Stinking Turd"
    in Danish? That's right, we don't. And it probably does.

    18. Horneytown, North Carolina, United States
    Its proximity to Hookersville, West Virginia is no coincidence. I also assume that, like Hookersville, the
    naming of Horneytown took place before "horney" meant "aching for a hot piece of ass" with an extra "e".
    But I'm starting to wonder why, pride and tradition aside, the townspeople in these little places never saw
    it fit to change their homes' names? Do they enjoy being ridiculed by the entire English-speaking world?

    19. Shitterton, Dorset, England
    I wonder if they bleep out the first part of Shitterton's name if it's mentioned on the Disney Channel?

    20. Disappointment, Kentucky, United States
    Le sigh. Never mind. You live in a small town in Kentucky. At least it was appropriately named.

    21. Fu[c]king, Austria
    The idiots who live in Fu[c]king, Austria had a vote in 2004 to determine whether or not they should
    change the town's name, and you know what they did? They voted against it, preferring instead to put up
    with international ridicule, numerous stolen road-signs and horrific Google results.

    22. Last but not least: Whakapapa
    Why is this the worst place name in the world? In Maori, the native language of New Zealand, the "wh"
    sound is pronounced "f". Say it aloud in your office and see what happens.icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

    Oh and:

    wikipedia.orgThe village is especially popular with British tourists; as a local tour guide explained, "The Germans all want to see Mozart's house in Salzburg, the Americans want to see where The Sound of Music was filmed. The Japanese want Hitler's birthplace in Braunau. But for the British, it's all about Fucking."[11] Augustina Lindlbauer, the manager of an area guesthouse, noted that the area had lakes, forests and vistas worth visiting, but there was an "obsession with Fucking". Lindlbauer recalled how she had to explain to a British female tourist "that there were no Fucking postcards."

    Who ever wrote that is woefully ignorant of US history! Yes, it was named long before the phrase took on it's current meaning.....It was named for General John Hooker. I thought every American knew that. Of course, I went to school when they still taught US history. icon_rolleyes.gif
