Towns With Worst Names
Are you happy with the town you live in? What factors dictate your answer?
Jobs, traffic, cost of living, schools and list goes on for elements to consider when rating a city. But let’s not leave out the town’s name.
Pick up a map of these grand United States and plunk your finger down most anywhere. You’re sure to stumble upon a town with a very odd name.
I have a list from genealogy site Findmypast.com, that perhaps identifies the top 10 worst town names of all. Keep in mind that there has to be a story of how each of these fine communities got their not so proud name.
For example, I checked into one of them. How did number one on the list get it’s unfortunate name?
It was named for the heavy drinkers that worked the docks along the Arkansas River. According to legend and Wikipedia, ‘They sucked on the bottle ’til they swelled up like toads.’ And the name ‘Toad Suck’ was born.
