Strangest City Names in North America
The Top Ten
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.

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.

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.
Way to many jokes made by people not from there. Though I'm pretty sure even they got the joke.
