One near here that I like is Kazabazua. The name has a certain zinginess on the tongue

As an added bonus, as you drive up the highway into town you pass “La Binerie de Kazabazua”, which sells baked beans (Caribean style, baked buried in sand, apparently). Somehow the French naming structure combined with phonetic spelling of an English word and phonetic spelling of an Algonkian phrase just pleases me rather more than is reasonable.

Tomorrow I will be driving in the Los Angeles area. I was previewing my route and noticed a town named Placentia. Can someone please translate that into English? I would hope that they did not name their city after the sack that a baby gets nourishment from its mother while in utero.

A few years ago I drove through Gurley, Nebraska. The town didn't look big enough for a high school, which is probably just as well. Think of the sports teams.... Gurley Men's Weightlifting? Definitely not a school Hans and Franz would attend.

Gurley Wrestling on the other hand.... That could be kinda fun!

That's 'placenta', not Placentia.

There's also a Placentia and a Placentia Bay in Newfoundland.

It's thought that the Placentia in Newfoundland was named by Basque fishermen from Spain in the 16th century. Plazencia in Basque means 'pleasant'.

This town in my mind will always portray death & destruction. Wiki has more descriptions online.
