Maybe so Juicers ...but there is the city of co ckburn in Western Australia..

Co ckburn is one of the major Coastal Cities found in the state of Western Australia. Situated just 22km south of Perth, the State's Capital City, and 8km south of Fremantle, once the home of the "America's Cup" in the 1980's.

10. Whiskey d i c k Mountain, Washington State, United States
As hard as America tries, it can't compete with Britain's high standards. This was a good effort, though. Well done, Washington.

Just wanted you to know that the "Midwestern Idiots" in Hell, Michigan would appreciate you plugging their town here. All these backwards country bumpkins have done is turn what was a just a gas station and convience store into a goldmine. Tens of thousands of people visit each year. Some to get married! Idiots? I don't think so.

Incidentally, Michigan is also home to one of the best named cities in the world, that would be Bad Axe, Michigan.

How 'bout Come by Chance, Gin Cove, Nicks' Nose, Dead Sheep Cove, Friggins Cove, and those two bays, Conception Bay and Placentia Bay, the beginning and the end, me thinks! Oh, and Gayside...but those people changed the name of their town, wonder why? And of course there is a Paradise here as well. I know there are others, just can't think of them right now. Tickle Cove, that's another! I love the names here in Newfoundland. I visited a small town in the Ottawa Valley a couple of years ago called Playfairville. Must have been a lot of kids in that hamlet.

So what exactly does it mean?

Saint Mary's Church in the hollow of the white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of St. Tysilio of the red cave.

To help you to understand how we get the translation above, here is a breakdown of the name and a translation of some Welsh words.

LLANFAIRpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch
Saint Mary's Church in the hollow of the white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of St. Tysilio of the red cave.

LLANFAIR - St. Mary's Church. "Llan" originally meant an "enclosure", now "church" and is usually followed by the name of a saint, in this case St. Mary. There are many places in Wales beginning with this, another example is Llangollen which means "church of St. Collen (hazel tree)".

LlanfairPWLLgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch
Saint Mary's Church in the hollow of the white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of St. Tysilio of the red cave.

PWLL - This is the Welsh for "hollow"

LlanfairpwllGWYNgyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch
Saint Mary's Church in the hollow of the white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of St. Tysilio of the red cave.

GWYN - This is the Welsh for "white"

LlanfairpwllgwynGYLLgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch
Saint Mary's Church in the hollow of the white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of St. Tysilio of the red cave.

GYLL - This comes from the Welsh for "hazel" which is "collen".

LlanfairpwllgwyngyllgoGERychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch
Saint Mary's Church in the hollow of the white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of St. Tysilio of the red cave.

GER - This is the Welsh "near" or "by".

LlanfairpwllgwyngyllgogeryCHWYRNdrobwllllantysiliogogogoch
Saint Mary's Church in the hollow of the white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of St. Tysilio of the red cave.

CHWYRN - This is the Welsh for "rapid".

LlanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrnDROBWLLllantysiliogogogoch
Saint Mary's Church in the hollow of the white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of St. Tysilio of the red cave.

DROBWLL - This comes from the word "trobwll" which is the Welsh for "whirlpool".

LlanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllLLANTYSILIOgogogoch
Saint Mary's Church in the hollow of the white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of St. Tysilio of the red cave.

LLANTYSILIO - This comes from the words "llan" meaning "parish" and St. Tysilio.

LlanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogOGOgoch
Saint Mary's Church in the hollow of the white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of St. Tysilio of the red cave.

OGO - This comes from the word "ogof" meaning "cave" in Welsh.

LlanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogoGOCH
Saint Mary's Church in the hollow of the white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of St. Tysilio of the red cave.

GOCH - "Coch" in Welsh means "red".

Coogs.... you beat me to mentioning Cut and Shoot, but you forgot about Uncertain.
There is also Foleyville Texas... nothing very unusual about the name, but the population is 8. And yes, there is only one city limit sign. Deadwood is another Texas town. They have a sign that actually says "Welcome to Deadwood. Home of 101 very happy people and one old grouch!"

If someone from France were planning to a trip to the US, that sounds like a town

Pink, OK and Beaver, OK.

Beaver is up in the panhandle
Go South on Hwy 69 (yeah that sign gets stolen alot, lol) till ya find Pink.
Actually I think pink is further west, but there is a Hwy 69 that runs North and South through Eastern Oklahoma.

The dirt in Pink is actually pink, it's a mix between red clay and sand I think that gives it the color.
