Silly Town Names A to Z

Discussion in 'Sports, Games and Health' started by Annie, Sep 5, 2017.

  1. Before I begin, I would like to say that FCJ 'told' me to pick a town beginning with A and go for it. I know a whole lot of silly town names that begin with B, but I couldn't come up with one that began with A, so I searched on the interweb for a UK town and found:

    ASSLOSS, Ayrshire, Scotland.

    Scotland has alot of verrrry strange names..

  12. Seems like we've hit a dry spot with J.

    So. JOHN O'GROATS, Scotland.

    Many moons ago, when I left home (to go overseas), I bequeathed my younger brother my car. When I returned, about 1 year later, I was concerned to find that my poor old car was almost completely clapped out. Of course my brother was 'all innocence'. However, I then found (because I was a snooping CSI girl), photographs of him and his friends, who had decided to drive from Land's End to John O'Groats.

    Land's End is the most southern point in the UK, and John O'Groats is the most northern.

    And I found photo's (in the day's before smart phones & selfies etc) of himself and his stupid mates grinning like idiots in front of both Town signs, to prove that they'd actually been there.

    Needless to say, I was a tad cross.

    But just thinking about it now makes me laugh.

  16. NEVADA // JIGGS
    About 30 miles south of Elko, Nevada, sits the small town of Jiggs. In 1918, businessman Albert Hankins owned the local hotel, dance hall, and general store—which basically meant he owned the whole town. Looking for a new name for the place, he took a suggestion from his kids. “Jiggs” was the top hat-wearing, Irish-American protagonist of their favorite comic strip Bringing Up Father. Following the name change, the women’s organization in town dubbed itself Maggie’s Club after the character’s wife.
