There is a Manunka Chunk, but it's on the New Jersey side of the Delaware River.

Intercourse and Blue Ball are still my favorite PA city names. Oh... and Beaver. haha.

There is a plethora of Beaver names. Beaver, Beaver Falls, New Beaver, South Beaver, the Beaver River, Little Beaver Creek, and of course, Beaver County. Probably more, but I can't think of them right now.

Oh my gosh, I forgot about Big Beaver! My family's ancestral farm was located there, and my dad owned a piece of it for many years. The tax preparer in Colorado cracked up when she heard the name.

There's also a Bad Axe, Michigan. It's up in the "thumb" of NE Michigan. I was actually stationed with a guy in Korea that was from there. (Hi Dave!)

I never fail to crack up when driving past the exit for Jersey Shore, Pa. I dunno if it's pleasant or not, but it sure as heck is funny. Like, who are they trying to fool?

Most pleasant name:

Morningside Heights (neighborhood in uptown Manhattan)

Name I get a kick out of:
Buttsville, NJ

And then, there's that friend of mine who wants to know why I want to move to "Pepsicola" Florida. (Pensacola)

Here in NJ, towns have some very pleasant names:

Cresskill
Maywood
Saddlebrook
and the very dignified Harrington Park
