20 of the Funniest Southern Town Names Posted by: Rod Ford | 0 Comments

Southerners are the best at naming things. We’re pretty good with colorful language in general, but when it comes to bestowing a memorable name on a landmark, city, hill, dale, farm, some pig or anything else interesting we might come across, well, we’re experts.

If you want proof, look in every state in the South. You better believe it’s got a town with a head-scratcher of a name … probably two. Of course we don’t have a monopoly on funny town names, but we’d argue we have some the most creative ones in America.  Here are some of our favorites by state:

  • Dismal, Tennessee
  • Hooker, Oklahoma
  • Burnt Corn, Alabama
  • Looneyville, Texas
  • Assawoman, Virginia 
  • Bucksnort, Tennessee
  • Hot Coffee, Mississippi
  • Tick Bite, Texas
  • Uneedus, Louisiana 
  • Possum Grape, Arkansas
  • Peculiar, Missouri 
  • Toast, North Carolina
  • Chunky, Mississippi
  • Hell Hole Swamp, South Carolina
  • Needmore, Florida
  • Hell for Certain, Kentucky
  • Allgood, Alabama
  • Woolybooger, West Virgina
  • Hell's Half Acre, South Carolina 
  • Boogertown, North Carolina   


But while we’re on the subject, what’s the most hilarious city name in your state?
