Gepp, Ar ( Is it pronounced "Jeep" or "Jep"?....That is the question.)
I had friends who said they were from Jeep and I drive through Gepp to get from college to my parents house and it took me two years to make the connection and realized I was driving right by them.

My favorite name is Possum Grape - off 67 north of Searcy, between Bald Knob and Newport (and Bald Knob would be another interesting one!).
My favorite name is Mountain Home.It is where I live, and it is truly my Mountain Home.
