Fannie’s Favorite Town Names in Washington State

Traveling in Washington State this year. Here’s a list of places you may have never heard of.

The Blog of Funny Names

When our beloved correspondent, Mailman, published her debut post: “Lancaster County, Keeping it Real since 1710”, a seed was planted in my brain. Not because it was the day we had the most hits on this site, for which the credit goes to founding correspondent, Dave, with his post published the night before, “Olympics 2012: Saeid Mohammadpourkarkaragh and His Heavyweight Name.”

It only took five years for the seed to germinate. What kind of strange and wonderful names are in my home state of Washington. We don’t have any towns named “Bird-In-Hand” or “Intercourse” or “Blue Balls”, but what wonderful jewels might exist (pun fully intended).

To avoid melting in the heat this past Sunday, I dug into my map collection perusing the cities index. The center fold may or may not have caused my readers to fog.
