10 Suggestive Names of Real Locations Worldwide — Part 9: The Cock Pit 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 9: The Cock Pit Version

This article is the ninth 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 the cock pit. No, not the place in an airplane where pilots are in control — rather, this cesspool pit of an article which deals with locations of whose names in part either look or sound like the word cock.

Without further ado so that I do not get too cocky about writing this article, let us begin — and the locations are listed in this article in alphabetical order…

1. Babcock, Wisconsin, United States

Named after an operator of a sawmill whose name was Joseph Weeks Babcock, this community of fewer than 130 people is located in the town of Remington in — guess where — Wood County in central Wisconsin, so we have a two-fer here for this one entry; and its motto is purportedly Birds, Bogs, and Bucks. You may not be hard-pressed to find out about events, things to do, places to stay, and dining options near Babcock.

2. Bangkok, Thailand

Not only is Bangkok the capital city in southern Thailand; but it is also the most populous — and how can an article about getting cocky be without this entry? Additional information pertaining to this city may be found here. Did you know that the official name of Bangkok — as of Pali and Sanskrit root words — is Krungthepmahanakhon Amonrattanakosin Mahintharayutthaya Mahadilokphop Noppharatratchathaniburirom Udomratchaniwetmahasathan Amonphimanawatansathit Sakkathattiyawitsanukamprasit, which means “City of angels, great city of immortals, magnificent city of the nine gems, seat of the king, city of royal palaces, home of gods incarnate, erected by Vishvakarman at Indra’s behest” and is supposedly the longest name for a city as according to Guinness World Records? This name proves that size really does matter.

3. Cockburn, Western Australia, Australia

Located approximately 15 miles south of the central business district of Perth in Western Australia, the city of Cockburn was named after Cockburn Sound, which was named after George Cockburn, who took Napoleon to exile on the island of Saint Helena after the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. Napoleon? Once again, size does matter — and to the chagrin of anyone who thinks this information is so toxic that it just burns their cock.

4. Cocked Hat, Delaware, United States

Sussex — yes, Sussex — is the county in southwestern Delaware in which Cocked Hat is located; but that is arguably better than Nosex. However, little information is known about the origins of this community — which means that not many people are obviously well aware of Delaware — which may cause a cocked head to go along with that hat. Head north on United States Highway 13 to get your Greenwood; and south brings you to be as powerful as a Cannon. Ooh, look off to the southwest and you will find Atlanta! Is this a hat trick — or should we just puck off to the next entry in this article?

5. Cockermouth, Cumbria, United Kingdom

This just keeps getting worse: Cockermouth? And it is located near the river Cocker — in Cumbria?!? Of its many famous “sons” — according to the official Internet web site of the town — the “most famous of all being William Wordsworth, Poet Laureate, who was born in Cockermouth on the 7th April 1770 in a fine Georgian house which stands on a tree-lined Main Street and which is now owned by the National Trust.” I will bet that Wordsworth could never find anything to rhyme with Cockermouth for his poetry: Lockersouth? Sockertouth? Mockernouth? Shockerwowth? Only one question remains in the western part of the United Kingdom: where did da river Derwent?

6. Cockeysville, Maryland, United States

Baltimore County in northern Maryland is the home to this village, which was named after a very Cockey family. One of its thoroughfares is that dam beaver road — whoops, correct that to Beaver Dam Road — but it is conveniently located off of the east side of Interstate 83. One thing may be certain: look too long at the design of the official flag of Maryland and your eyes will be sent to Cockeyed-ville.

7. Cockington, Paignton, United Kingdom

Although the village itself — which is located west of Torquay in Devon County in southwestern England — is thought to have been founded approximately 2,500 years ago during the Iron Age, Cockington Church is estimated to have been standing since the year 1069. That is a lot of cock over the years and something about which to crow.

8. Coxsackie, New York, United States

Another double entendre name with the sounds of the words cock and sack, Coxsackie is a town which is located in Greene County in southeastern New York state. “Originally inhabited by the Mahican Native American tribe, a sub tribe of the Algonquin nation, the first European to build a home in Coxsackie was Pieter Bronck”, according to the official Internet web site of the town. “Pieter built the original section of what is now the Bronck museum in 1663. The 350th anniversary of the Bronck house was celebrated in 2013, and is one of the oldest such structures still intact in New York State.” If you are wondering about the familiar sound of the last name, Pieter Bronck is thought to be related to Jonas Bronck, after whom the Bronx was named. How is that for a Broncks bomber or Broncks cheer? Forget the 2019 Novel Coronavirus — did you know that there was such a thing as the coxsackievirus? Stuff that one in the hanging sack — if you have the balls to do so.

9. Hancock, Vermont, United States

If you like to be kinky, know that 82 percent of Hancock is currently in the Green Mountains; or more specifically, the Green Mountain National Forest, which is pubic — er…public — land. Established in 1780 and located in Addison County in western Vermont with a population of 323 residents, Hancock was once home to John Deere, according to the official Internet web site of the town. Does the addition of real maple syrup to Hancock in the Green Mountains only excite you even more?

10. Onancock, Virginia, United States

“Founded in 1680, Onancock has a more than 300-year history of bringing people the goods and services they crave. A deep-water port, the town offers safe harbor to pleasure boats cruising the Chesapeake Bay and put-in convenience for kayakers and day sailors”, according to the official Internet web site of this town, which is located in Accomack County on the DelMarVa peninsula in eastern Virginia. “Heading inland, visitors will find eight blocks jammed with shops and galleries, historic buildings and churches, and varied dining options.” Onancock jammed with…no…that one is too easy; so this one will be given the shaft.

Summary

    Is the reason you get featured on Boarding Area is because you are Randy Peterson’s illegitimate child?

    1. Brian Cohen says:

      Perhaps the reason is because The Gate is one of the founding blogs of BoardingArea, JustSaying

      …or maybe it is because The Gate has been around for 14.5 years — longer than most blogs?

      The reason could be because I know how to correctly spell the last name of Randy Petersen.

      Just sayin’…

  2. Having visited Coxsackie, New York many times… I can say it’s a little bit awkward. Happily I did NOT know about the “coxsackievirus” until I read this article.
