Boy, you're right - you got some strange named places. I know, I'm a fine one to talk since the name of the village where I live is "Grassflat" and there's not many flat spots in the whole darned town!
Way back, when I worked for the NRA in Washington, the data entry dept. handled all the magazine subscriptions and we all used to love reading some of the town names we saw - Razorback, West Virginia; Jackass Flats, Nev. are two that I remember.
