Strangest City Names in North America

The Top Ten

1 Saint Louis-du-Ha! Ha!, Quebec

I went for a walk here on a Quebec trip with my school in grade 8 and we thought that the city looked amazing. It wasn’t until we found out what the name of the city was. Everybody in the bus started laughing which makes sense why they put the Ha! Ha! In the name.

The only town in the whole world that has two exclamation marks in its name. That's hilarious. - BKAllmighty

Oh yes, I love it. It's also at #1 on my list Funniest Genuine City, Town or Village Names in Canada - Metal_Treasure

This sounds like someone trying to say St. Louis, but for some reason, the find it really funny - SpectralOwl

2 Dildo, Newfoundland

Bet a certain Casey fanboy would love to go there - TwilightKitsune

Who the heck names their town after a dirty word, anyway?

Is it because of some strange etymology? - BorisRule

No explanation needed. - SpectralOwl

3 Boring, Oregon

Gravity Falls was based on this city, ironically being the setting of one of the most interesting shows I have ever seen. - 445956

Featured in Netflix Original "Everything Sucks! "

Gravity Falls was based off this place, the irony - PokeFallsMagica

The name definitely describes what it is. Boring! - JoeBoi

4 Hell, Michigan

I was born in Hell, I grew up in Hell, I became famous in hell, I got married in hell, I raised kids in Hell, and I will die in Hell, Michigan - SpectralOwl

So I guess in that Megadeath song "Go to Hell" they meant here... - TwilightKitsune

7 Ball's Falls, Ontario

I live, literally, minutes away from Ball's Falls. I never thought it's name would end up here. It's a beautiful conservation area that I visit every year in autumn. - BKAllmighty

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

8 Los Banos, California

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

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

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.

9 Intercourse, Pennsylvania

The Simpsons made a reference to this.

10 No Name, CO

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

The town with no name, cool. - BorisRule

15 Punkeydoodles Corners, Ontario

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. Half the time there are missing signs everywhere. Kids are always stealing them. Why am I closely connected to TWO places on this list? Ontario is weird, guys. - BKAllmighty

The town for clowns - SpectralOwl

Weirdest place to find Dude Love if you got to the place that inspired Courage The Cowardly Dog.

21 Butternuts, New York

Guessing this was WAY before WWII

It’s not really a city but instead a municipality of Kirkland. I live not to far away and I thought the name was cool until I learned about WWII. Honestly, I don’t know why the name hasn’t been changed yet but let’s hope it changes soon.
