In world we have such funny places..!


There is a town in Arizona named Nothing. It was pretty much completely abandoned in 2005, so now it’s just a ghost town. There is a sign there that reads: “The staunch citizens of Nothing are full of Hope, Faith, and Believe in the work ethic. Thru-the-years-these dedicated people had faith in Nothing, hoped for Nothing, worked at Nothing, for Nothing.”

No Name

This Colorado town was sort of accidentally named No Name, when highway developers put “no name” on an exit sign tentatively. The name, or lack thereof, stuck, and the town is still called No Name.


This small Amish town in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, was named “intercourse” because the meaning of that word used to be somewhat different. It used to mean the fellowship shared between a religious community

Boring, Oregon

Not the best name this small town in Oregon could have given itself, but hopefully the locals have a great sense of humor. Boring is actually named after a civil war veteran, who lived to a ripe old age and was buried with his wife in the local cemetery. Funny place names from around the world 14

My Large Intestine, Texas

We obviously have a knack for naming places here in the U.S., because here’s another zinger. Apparently, the very concept of a place named My Large Intestine is so crazy that all GPS Mapping Services have refused to acknowledge it thus far. My Large Intestine © 33ft/iStock/Thinkstock (


Obviously the innuendo behind this Yorkshire town’s name is rampant, but the name likely was derived from the town’s Welsh and English background.
