The 10 Places With Most Absurd And Funny Names On Earth
Truth or Consequences, New Mexico
In the 1950s, this New Mexico town’s name was changed from Hot Springs to Truth or Consequences after a well-known radio show of the same name promised to air from whichever town changed its name first. Well, was the fame worth it?
Cockermouth, Cumbria, England
How does one even think of such names, that too for a place? Just imagining a British man showing interest in this place is hilarious. *Focus on the accent*
No one can ever guess how this place got its name. It was actually named after a veteran who lived a long and presumably boring life.
After Boring comes Dull! While we don’t know who thought of this name or why we certainly appreciate the sense of humour.
Eh, Okay! Needless to say, this phrase would define the ‘Don’t-Care’ personality of the residents there.
Wagga Wagga, Australia
A name so funny, they say it twice!
Who would think this place was this dreamy after knowing its name? Imagine telling someone you visited the gorgeous island of Poopoo. It just doesn’t work.

Westward Ho!, Devon, England
Apparently, this funny name was given to this town to attract tourism and create excitement in people. At least now that exclamation mark makes some sense!
No Name, Colorado
Wait, there’s more! This place also has a No Name Canyon, No Name Creek, and No Name Tunnel. Let that sink in; we’ll wait.
Through the years, these committed people believed in nothing, wished for nothing, and worked for nothing. Hence, the name. ( We guess)
