There is a portion of the movie Beavis and Butthead do America that deals with this, and it is really really funny.

There is a town not far from where I live called "Cut and Shoot" Texas. There used to be a town in Indinana(?) named "Chink". They called their ice rink the "Chink Rink".
Warm winds blowing, heating blue skies, and a road that goes forever, I'm going to Texas!

A village called Amen in the Netherlands, and another called Tiengeboden (Ten Commandments), while Belgium has the irreverently named Oude God (Old God). There is a place called Batman in Turkey. There are two places called Boos in France - in Dutch, Boos = Angry. There is a Brabant in West Virginia - Brabant is a Dutch province.There is a Frankrijk in the Netherlands - in Dutch, Frankrijk = France, also an Engeland = England in Dutch, and remarkably a village called America. On a culinary note, Ham in Kent (UK) is not far from Sandwich. Kirky might like a tot of Rum - Inner Hebrides and Austria. Michigan (USA) has a place called Gay while Belgium has a Groot Homo (Large Homosexual), Klein Homo (Small Homosexual) and Nieuw Homo (New Homosexual). Hopefully all use France's Condom, while Canada has it's Dildo for them to play with.

A modest selection for your titillation.

Ding Dong, Texas and Looneyville Texas for you Bush haters
Assawoman, Virginia
Blueballs, Pennsylvania
Spread Eagle, Wisconsin
Hornytown, North Carolina

Actually, a lot of towns are named Whatever Lick like Deer Lick Kentucky, Lizard Lick NC, .

They are names for salt lick locations for animals on major trails that evolved into towns.

There is also a place here in AK, called Kakhonak, Alaska. Pronounced Cock-A-knock. Which goes along with the childish game that gets played, of hey...where is the prettiest place in Alaska? other guy says, I dont know. Then you smack him in the balls and say Kakhonak! Same premise for the the capital of Thailand...Bangkok.

There is a place in France called Pyla which has the largest sand dune in Europe. Pila in Portuguese means dick. It has a lot of stores with that name on it, like "Pyla off-road" (for the adventurous ones) but by far my favourite is a sign I saw for a supermarket on a main road, pointing to another road and saying "Super Pyla"

True Story: The idiots that originally settled there didn't know how to spell Ptarmigan . . . .

Quoting YYZflyer (Thread starter):
Deadhorse,Alaska

I work there and I've no clue how this place got it's name:

There are 5 people (permanent), 5000 oil workers (transient), 1000 caribou, 20 grizzlies, a dozen polar bears, hundred of thousands of birds . . . and not one gawddamn horse . . . dead or alive  silly  wink 

Tok, Alaska.

Legend says, at the outbreak of WW2, the resident shortened the name form Tokyo, Alaska to Tok - the apparent reasons are obvious.

Skagway, Alaska. In Tlingit Indian it apparently means Home of the North Wind. Now, having grown up there I can attest to the wind. And having visited since adulthood, I can vouch for the Skags as well . . .  Wow!

My grandma tells me when she was learning US states as a kid in Finland, they always laughed at the name Colorado, because it sounded something like animal hole, or something like that, in Finnish.
