I always thought the town Analomink, PA had a disgusting name. Majoun - "Lord Hereford's Knob" ?!?!?!?!! That's hysterical!

These aren't really that weird. There just unique Texas town names.

Happy, TX (that town really exists)
Krum, TX
Hurst, TX
Temple, TX
Bruceville-Eddy, TX
Washington-on-the-Brazos, TX

These are Texas towns that take names from other towns/countires:

Buffalo, Cleveland, Jacksonville, Pasadena, San Diego, Paris, Italy, Athens, Arlington (Virginia), New York, Orange, and Rhome counts because it sounds like Rome.

Myfask, Ypsilanti is 30 miles west of Detroit Michigan. It's also next to the city of Ann Arbor.

There's also Palestine, Odessa, and Iran.
Pasadena, TX might predate Pasadena, CA for all I know.

How about Rancho Cucamonga? I love the word "Cucamonga"!

With apologies to anyone living there, how about Boring, Oregon? Or Pahrump, Nevada?
