    I have always been amused by Jersey Shore, PA. All the more curious because it is neither near New Jersey, nor near the shore.

    Not a town, but Chunky Gal Mountain in north Georgia.

    Also, Country Girl Road in Princeton WV.

    Gotta love those names.

    What language is the name from and does the l' represent a palatalized L, a glottalized L or a voiceless L?

    Thank you. So, the apostrophe after the L would be a glottal stop.
