Place names

There was an exchange of place name conflicts, idiosyncracies and chuckles earlier today. Here's a few from my neck of the woods....(no pun intended)....
Bacon Cove
Beaver Cove
Cape Onion
Coffee Cove
Come By Chance
Cow Head
Crow Head
Deep Bight
Dildo Run
Happy Adventure
Happy Valley
Heart's Delight
Heart's Desire
Joe Batt's Arm
Nameless Cove
Port aux Bras
River of Ponds
Seldom Come By
Shoe Cove
Spread Eagle
Stocking Harbour
St. Joan's Within
St. Joan's Without
Tickle Cove
Toogood Arm
Unfortunate Cove
Virgin Arm
Witless Bay

It's kind of a smile while you drive place.....

There is an actual place on Marine Drive in Portland, Oregon called "Dittler's Beach." Brings a smile to the LEOs who are called to the area to do a safety check.

Oklahoma mostly has odd sounding names, like Weleetka, Watonga, Waurika, Wynona, and Wapanucka. There's Tahlequah, Okmulgee and Muskogee. But we do have a few odd ones like yours: Bugtussle and Slaughterville come to mind.

Michigan has a Climax, too (good for them, right?) Also there's a Gay, Michigan. Interestingly, Climax is fairly close to Hell, Michigan.... but Gay is nowhere near either one.

Spuzzam, Bugaboos, Poopoo Creek, Skookumchuck, Yahk, Likely, Parsnip River and Zippermouth Lake

There's a Stinkwater here as well. I know there's a Conception Bay that's near Booty Cove back east

Minnesota also has a Climax too. It's near Fertile Mn. Hence the old joke:
Newspaper headline....
Fertile woman dies in Climax!
