Don't Even ask me why they call it that - SpectralOwl

7 Los Banos, California Los Banos, California

Hey everybody! Let's hit the bathrooms! - Synchronocity

I think someone tried to create a city in southern California while trying to make the name fit in by using spanish. Unfortunately, the results turned out embarrassing. (Los Banos is spanish for The Bathrooms) - SpectralOwl

Nice try by a know-it-all 10 year old. "Los Banos" means "the Baths", and is the name given to the region by Spanish [from SPAIN] land-grant ranchers, due to the natural springs that irrigate the wetlands, making it a good place for livestock.

8 No Name, CO

Came across this city on a trip to Colorado. Couple houses, a McDonalds and a gas station - Phillip873

Oh, so they couldn’t figure out what the name of the town is going to be, and so they named this town “No name” - JoeBoi

I was born in Kitchener, Ontario, in a hospital that is no more than 15 minutes away from Punkeydoodles Corners. I've driven through it dozens of times.
