Grosse TÍte, Louisiana - translates to 'big head'. Supposedly named for a big-headed Choctaw Indian that lived there. Now the only people with big heads are the Cajuns there

Remlap, Alabama.

So named because it was the founding family's name backward.

God, I love towns that were named before the sphincter crowd arrived.

I think there used to be a waterfall there, but then the dam was built and flooded it? Either way there is a man made waterfall because of the link river dam.

How about Liberal, Kansas?

Thought was not about political views, but that the people were " ...mighty liberal" in sharing water with settlers heading west

Sugarcreek, OH's creek isn't actually sugary.

East Liverpool, OH is a whole ocean west of Liverpool, England.

It's not a "city" but my wife and I used to live in Western CO in a little geographically isolated neighborhood/unincorporated community called No Name. We lived on No Name Lane with No Name Creek rushing behind our house as it cascaded down No Name Canyon. To get into neighboring Glenwood Springs by car, we had to go through No Name Tunnel. Our old exit is itself is home to the No Name Rest Area, a popular stop for travelers on I-70 to stretch their legs and take pictures of the ironic "No Name" signage.

Seneca Castle, NY has no castle.

Seneca Falls, NY has no falls.

(Both once did have those features, though. The castle of the Seneca Nation was destroyed on September 9, 1779. The falls lasted until 1915. Why There Are No Falls in Seneca Falls | News | ithaca.com )

North Miami Beach is not on the beach.
Sunrise, FL is all the way against the Everglades in western Broward County: nowhere near the ocean that receives the first sunrise.
