    Taft, California was originally named Moron. It got renamed while president Taft was making a trip to the west coast, in the hope that he would add the town as a stop in honor of it. But he got sick and had to return to the east coast before he made it to the area

    I don’t know much about american towns, but I can tell you about some weird town names in Germany. For example there is a place in Saxony called “Amerika” (it has about 200 inhabitants i think) and in Thuringa there is a village, which signs are stolen very often, because it’s called “Drogen” (in english: drugs).
    Further names:
    “Gabe Gottes” – gods gift
    “Linsengericht” – meal of lentils
