Favorite oddball names:

Jersey Shore, Pennsylvania. It's a couple hundred miles from the Atlantic Ocean.
In West Virginia, there are loads of examples. But near where I used to live in Charleston, WV, my faves were Left Hand, Pinch, and Quick.

There are dozens of place names in America that contain the word Negro. And most of them used to be worse.

I strongly dislike cities/towns with names that are used by other sizable towns.

Springfield and Bloomington, for example.

I also dislike Saint Petersburg since it shares the name with the major city in Russia.

I could never move to Louisville, KY, because it's just so mis-pronounced by the locals lol! People from there INSIST you pronounce it "Luh-vull", but since I don't have a southern accent, I sound stupid saying it that way.
