Want To Go To Dildo, Newfoundland?



Yes, that really is the name of a town in Newfoundland. Does the name of a city or town draw your attention and influence your choices?

There are a lot of oddly-named places across Canada. I thought it would be fun to share some of them with you and how they got their name.

Snafu, Yukon

This community was christened after the military acronym-Situation Normal: All Fouled Up, b.y the U.S. military while they were building the Alaska highway. Snafu served as one of two forest fire crew camps in the Yukon in the ’50s. It’s now a campground surrounded b.y lakes and a popular destination for canoe trips.

Stoner, British Columbia

Which came first: Stoner or Stone Creek? Locals reportedly use the latter, with “Stoner” presumably a modern- derivative.

Legal, Alberta

Legal owes its name t.o Emile Legal, the bishop of St. Albert, Alberta. The bilingual town was settled mostly b.y homesteaders from Quebec and is now renowned for its public murals. It was named “French Mural Capital of the World”.

Happyland, Saskatchewan

The full name for this community is the Rural Municipality of Happyland no. 231. The community supposedly got its name from an early resident who was very pleased 😊 t.o be there.

Climax, Saskatchewan

This Saskatchewan village was settled b.y Christ Fugelstad, an immigrant from Climax, Minnesota, who was apparently either terribly homesick or terribly unimaginative. (the original Climax owed its curious name t.o a chewing tobacco company.) Today, Climax has a small but thriving population of One Hundred and Ninety-five

Crotch Lake, Ontario

The name comes from the fact that the lake has two narrows, and the point where they meet resembles the crotch of a stick. The lake has seventy-seven campsites and is part of the canoe route through the Mississippi River.

Peekaboo Corner, New Brunswick

A small community within the village of Norton, New Brunswick, Peekaboo Corner is named for a poorly-placed house that stood on the corner, blocking the vision of passing drivers. Hopefully, the name delivered a cautionary message to future motorists.

Sober Island, Nova Scotia

Some locals claim that this remote island in Nova Scotia was named b.y British soldiers who landed there with no liquor on their ship. Today the island is known for its oysters, and for the Sober Island Brewing Company, a popular brewery despite not actually being located there.

Dildo, Newfoundland

No one can quite confirm where the most infamous of all funny Canadian town names comes from. Some say it comes from a French word for the island, “ile d’eau” or a Spanish word for the bottom of a boat. The term has also been known t.o refer t.o a pin placed in a rowboat that attaches t.o the oar. You can always ask its mascot, Captain Dildo, for his take on the tale.

Have driven through the village of Tongue in northern Scotland. Then there's a Twatt on the Orkney Islands.

I understand there's a diving club located in Muff in County Donegal, Ireland. Interestingly they call themselves Muff Diving Club.

And across the border in England, there's a Cockermouth.

There's an innocently named (in German!) settlement near Bern, Switzerland called Wankdorf which always makes me smile.

I do like the town name 'Kamloops', in my trip to Canada we stopped there for lunch. It sounds like a cereal name.

Don't know very many funny town names.

I also like Captain Dildo! I can almost picture the embroidery on his captain hat.

The problem with visiting Dildo is that when you leave it will be behind you.

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

Amazing what some places get named. There are many more -maybe someday, I will do a similar post. Aren't there any strange-sounding places you have heard of or visited?

Oh my goodness, the townspeople must have a great sense of humour and take a lot of kidding

Had never heard of it so looked it up! Apparently, Intercourse, Alabama is named for the traffic intersection of the town's crossroads (called "intercourse" at that time). Many residents want the name changed to Siloam, but state maps still identify it as Intercourse.

    Quoting  :

Apparently, in the 18th century, the owner of the Blue Ball Inn hung a blue ball outside and referred to his business as "The Sign of the Blue Ball." The name caught-on and became the town's name. Blue Ball is often listed among the "delightfully-named towns" in Pennsylvania along with Pleasureville, Intercourse, Mount Joy, Lititz, Bareville, Bird-in-Hand, and Paradise.

Ah yes. Literally translated from French as "The Love Cove". It is a National Historic Site and contains the oldest burial mound found in North America. I have never seen an iceberg.

Lol. Those are funny. Makes you wonder how they came to be called those and how much teasing the townspeople get 😊. Thanks for sharing them.

Shouldn't learning new stuff be fun? You wonder how people that live in some of the unusually named places manage? The postal service must have a great sense of humour too.
