Dear Mr Tucson: I love the creative names all over Arizona, don't you? I mean, 'Zona-like names like Fredonia, Patagonia and Sedona! Hey, how on earth did they forget about Zonia, Balonia, and Phonia? Southwestern and old west names like Tombstone, Tortilla Flats and Horsethief Basin! Hispanic influences of Ajo, Casa Grande and Sahuarita! Native American county names like Pima, Maricopa, and Yavapai! It just doesn't get much more creative than the names found throughout Arizona, does it?

Dear CooCoo: I also think that Walla Walla (WA), Tallahassee (FL), Cucamonga (CA), Michigamme (MI), and Nacogdoches (TX) are pretty creative! Not to mention combo names like: Calexico, Mexicali, and Texarkana! Can't think of any others right now, but thanks for the name game, CooCoo!

Not in Arizona of course, but there's always Hell, Michigan (where they have plenty of cold days) and Intercourse, Pennsylvania (where they have plenty of ...), and finally Toad Suck, Arkansas (where - well, I don't even want to think about it).

For your further amusement, here's a pretty good list:

Nope, just a Goobertown Arkansas.
Guess we should take the list with "grain of salt".

Not on the list, but a funny-named place none-the-less is Blabon, North Dakota (a place I've actually been - though it was decades ago) - clearly a town for those who like to talk.
