    There's a real nice country song about a girl who is "All the Rage in Paris"......without ever leaving Texas.

    Not to hyjack, but also interesting would be a thread on towns with names never seen anywhere else, like Dime Box, Tx or Bucksnort, Ga.

    My hometown of Nashua, NH is not famous, but we made a point to mail a post card at the "other" Nashua.


    This is not quite what you're looking for...but I couldn't resist this detour in WA state...we found a little cafe, but no coffee.

    Dunmovin, CA (actually a ghost town these days; they really ARE Dunmovin)

    There used to be a place called Nothing, AZ along US-93, but I can't find it on Google maps, probably because it really was nothing, just one building along the highway.

    Nothing? Wrong thread ...
    I can't believe how incredulous I am.

    Actually, it's pronounced mad-drid, as in the New Madrid fault. But still, it's not pronounced the same way as the one in Spain.

    I've been through Nothing it is between Kingman and Wickiup.

    As for unusual names, how about What Cheer, IA or Toadsuck, AK
