I absolutely love the names of some of the old farm communities in Minnesota. They are so beautiful:
Blooming Prairie. Hayfield. Spring Grove. Spring Valley. Butternut. Maple Grove. Apple Valley. Rose Creek. Hope. Cottonwood. Pine Island. Deerfield. Blue Earth. Long Lost Lake. Harmony. Hartland. Freeborn. Two Harbors. Aurora. Geneva. Sunrise.

I know I've skipped around the state (a lot). I just love the names, and the memories, and the camping.
My thanks to the pioneers who named these lovely places, with their lovely names.

SherryNPaul: You know you live too close to Minnesota when you have been to just about all of them or you don't live that far away.

It's not as exciting as it sounds though.

I work in two local towns/villages No Place and Pity Me. At the other end of the country is a town that should be in the USA: Westward Ho!

And, yes, its official town name does include the exclamation mark/point - the only place in Britain that does.

In Saskatchewan (strange all by itself), we have Moose Jaw and Primate. Just West of Conquest, mentioned earlier by Hazel, is Bounty and Fortune. We also have Elbow and Eyebrow. Candahar was more familiar to me as a town in Saskatchewan than Afghanistan.

The alphabet game is easier to play here. If you follow one of the rail lines out of Saskatoon, you will find at approximately 10 mile intervals:

Clavet, Bradwell, Allan, Zelma, Young, Xena, Watrous, Venn, Undora, Tate, Semans, Raymore, Quinton, Punnichy, Mostyn, Lestock, Kelliher, Jasmin, Ituna, Hubbard, Goodeve, Fenwood, Cana, Bangor, Atwater, Zeneta, Yarbo, Welby, Victor, Uno, Quadra, Pope, Oakner, Norman, Levine, Justice, Ingelow, Harte, Gregg, Firdale, Exira, Deer, Caye, Bloom, etc.

There are some gaps. Not all the towns exist anymore.
