10 Suggestive Names of Real Locations Worldwide — Part 13: The Miscellaneous Version

Have you ever been to a place somewhere in this wonderful world in which we live which has a name that seems suggestive — or perhaps less than wholesome? In locations outside of the country where you are based, the names of locations may seem to have a different meaning to you than the actual origin — but when those strange names are found in the same country as yours, they may tend to have you scratching your head.

10 Suggestive Names of Real Locations Worldwide — Part 13: The Miscellaneous Version

This article is the thirteenth in a series which give examples of suggestive names of real locations around the world; and as a form of proof that they actually exist, an interactive Google map is included with each entry — along with a brief description of the highlighted location — and the main focus of this article is simply miscellaneous suggestive names.

Without further ado, let us begin — and the locations are listed in this article in alphabetical order…

1. Boysack, Arbroath, Scotland, United Kingdom

Boysack is a village which is located in the parish of Inverkeilor and the county of Angus, which is a local government council area of eastern Scotland in the United Kingdom. You can read more about the extensive history of this village until you are aching to the point that your Boysack is backed up and overfilled with all of the information, and desperately needing a release.

2. Bald Knob, Arkansas, United States

“Where the Ozarks meet the Delta” is the city of Bald Knob, which is named after a prominent, treeless ridge of layered rock that served as a landmark to pioneers — most notably, Hernando De Soto — in White County in Arkansas; and the city was incorporated in 1881. If you get too excited with the thought of rubbing Bald Knob until it shines, just head south to the Bald Knob Refuge…

3. Climax Springs, Missouri, United States

…but if you decide not to take refuge, do not be surprised of the Climax Springs in Camden County in central Missouri — as proven by the official state slogan of “Missouri Loves Company” — but apparently, the climax ended for its residents, as the village was no longer incorporated in 2015. Perhaps its lascivious actions was Camdened by the county?

4. Cummings, North Dakota, United States

Like Bald Knob, Cummings was established in 1881 — but in Traill County in eastern North Dakota near the border which the state shares with Minnesota; and it was named after an employee of the Great Northern Railway named Henry Cumings. 1881 must have been some wild year. Unlike the aforementioned Climax Springs, this unincorporated community has been Cummings ever since.

5. Dickeyville, Wisconsin, United States

Grant County in southwestern Wisconsin is the home of this village, which is located approximately ten miles from Dubuque in Iowa and has the Dickeyville Grotto and Shrines located in the heart of it. Coming to incorporation took a lot of stroking over the decades since Dickeyville was established when it was named after Charles Dickey in 1849, as incorporation did not officially occur until 1947. Perhaps 98 years was more than enough time to dicker about incorporating? Was it really that hard?!?

6. Gofuku, Toyama, Japan

The loose translation of the name Gofuku — which is located in the Toyama prefecture of north central Japan — is dry goods. It is home to the location of one of the three campuses of the University of Toyama. No records exist pertaining to how many visitors who speak English responded with “Oh, yeah?!? Gofuku too!!!”

7. Kumler, Illinois, United States

West Township in McLean County in eastern Illinois is where the ghost town of Kumler is located. Kumler may arguably be the climax of the short length of almost 110 miles of Illinois State Highway 54, which thrusts right through it. Positioned roughly between Mansfield and Bellflower, could Kumler be the result?

8. Reamstown, Pennsylvania, United States

Founded in the 1740s and named by Tobias Ream in honor of his father, Johann Eberhardt Riehm, Reamstown is located in Lancaster County in southeastern Pennsylvania — the same county in which Blue Ball and Intercourse are located as well. Is that a coincidence?

9. Spread Eagle, Wisconsin, United States

The chain of lakes on which this unincorporated community is located in Florence County in northeastern Wisconsin near the state border with the upper peninsula of Michigan resembles an eagle with wings spread — hence the name Spread Eagle, which has been left wide open for puerile humor over the years. Get a leg up on the orgasmic recreational activities which are located nearby — including touring several waterfalls, fishing, skiing, and snowmobiling. The waterfalls really flow freely when — no…this one is too easy to finish.

10. Virginville, Pennsylvania, United States

Although the origin of its name is disputed, Virginville is located in Richmond Township in Berks County — which is a county that shares a border with the aforementioned Lancaster County in southeastern Pennsylvania. Maiden Creek flows through this community, which was designated as the Virginville Historic District by the National Register of Historic Places in 2000.
