Posted:So south of London there's a place called Vauxhall.

Which to me is one of the coolest place names ever!

What cool place names do you like?

Posted:i like the town of hotashell (hot-as-hell)... except in summer!



There is also a 'Zulu clan nammed' town called Maphumulo, which basically translates to 'place of rest'



The ultimate tho, is the little farm town of:

tweebuffelsmeteenskootmosdoodgeskietfontien

twee=2; buffels=buffalo; met=with; een=1; skoot=bullet; mosdood=really dead; geskiet=shot; fontein=spring!

*alot of afrikaans places end with fontein, to do with water, as they were all built near water sources. This place some bloke shot 2 buffalo with one bullet, and hence the name! I don't think there's a place in the world with a longer name!

ubblol

I can vouch for it. Big Beaver Road is Quarton road west of Woodward Ave. However, when it hits I-75 it is, indeed Exit 69.

Also, Ann Arbor has a Hiscock street. It intersects Gott (german for God) St. A friend of mine (who is gay, by coincidence) lives on the corner of Gott and Hiscock.
