Quoting samsara2

Terminfeckin (I'm serious, look it up if you dont believe me...I think it's Co. Meath as well....)

Believe it or not, I used to work with somebody from that village, it's close to Drogheda. The village saint is called St. Feckin.

Australia has a lot of places named with aboriginal words. Here are a few in the state of New South Wales:

Goonoo Goonoo [gunny goo noo]
Currabubulla [kurra bub bu la]
Wee Waa [we war]
Wagga Wagga [wogga wogga]

I searched the web for funny place names...

  • Intercourse (Pennsylvania, USA)
  • You Bet (California, USA)
  • Climax (Colorado, USA)
  • Nothing (Arizona, USA)
  • Wankie (Zimbabwe)
  • Hooker (Arkansas, USA)
  • Boring (Oregon, USA)
  • Satans Kingdom (Vermont, USA)

Here's a site for funny names from the US.

I once journeyed from Wank to Fucking via Condom (and ended up a week later in Hell) more or less for the heck of it and because i had a week to kill....

As for strangest, Å (in Norway) always strikes me as a tad on the short side, and i have a strange liking of the names Jokkmokk and Arjeplog (both in Sweden) for no apparent reason. We've got lots of odd ones in Wales, although not sure if any of them count as strange or not. And there's plenty of ones which are eccentric, surreal or semi rude in England.
