12 Funniest City Names Around The World

  • UPDATED Apr 20, 2018

Geography is not my favourite subject! But yes, if I had to read and learn names of places as funny as these, it would have been a funny ride!
Here are the names of 13 places that are extremely high on the funny quotient and really not meant for kids to say out loud. No wonder why these places were never mentioned in School!

1. Dildo

Where: Canada
Yes, you would be wondering why anyone would name a town like this! Mapped by Captain James Cook, the name is said to be the result of the navigator’s sense of humour.

2. Fucking

Where: Austria
Actually called as Fukching, the name of the town has been abbreviated over the years and what we have today is a f*cking funny name! Reportedly, the traffic signs with the town’s name on it get stolen easily! That’s one funny souvenir to have!

3. Condom

Where: France
The name of this town actually comes from Gaulish words condate-ute;-magos which means market of confluence and later revamped to Condom in Latin. Owing to its relevance to name’s English counterpart, a contraceptive museum was opened in the town, but was closed in 2005. Sad.

4. Bastardstown

Where: Ireland
Probably, everyone here knows nothing!

5. Hell

Where: Norway
Probably the A.C.D.C. was driving to this town when they came with their legendary song! The best part about this town is its main attraction- the freight forwarding office which is named as god’s expedition!

6. Dull

Where: Scotland
A twin town of Boring in Oregon in USA, Dull actually is a Gaelic word referring to a Meadow. This cosy town and its historic church are not dull at all!

7. Weed

Where: California
California boasts its wonderful cities, its Hollywood and its Golden Gate, sure, we like it. But a town named weed? Things just got better! Although, the city in itself has no connection to actual weed and was named after its local pioneer Abner Weed.

8. Nipple Peak

Where: Antarctica
A towering snow-capped peak, this one has its quirky name owing to the shape of its shape! No push-up bras needed here!

9. Middelfart

Where: Denmark
No, this isn’t the place to let out the gases struggling inside you and no, people don’t fart here in the middle of a conversation (unless they are really helpless and gassy). This town in central Denmark is actually plush and delightful to visit!

10. French Lick

Where: Indiana, USA
This town owes its name to the mash-up of two words, French trading post and salt lick. Popular as a spa town, French lick resort and casinos are a great place to chill as you lick, not sip, the French Lick wine!

11. Disappointment Islands

Where: French Polynesia
That said; this group of picturesque islands won’t disappoint you! Abundant in beauty and grace, they are a surprise package to have such a disappointing name!

12. Hooker

Where: Oklahoma, USA
Repeatedly listed as a town with an unusual name, the town has its motto pretty clear- It’s a Location, not a Vocation!
