The Sunshine State has some extremely unusual and funny town names you probably didn’t even know existed. From Couch to Fluffy Landing and Possum Bluff, there are some very interesting (questionable?) thinking being made when choosing such an important name… Here are some of the most unusual – and absolutely real – city and town names in the state of Florida.
This town name is unusual but it is not strange. It’s actually quite pretty. We can’t help but wonder if many bohemians live in this city…
Is this town named couch because there are a lot of furniture stores? We’ll have to go to find out!
A badass town name if you ask us!
We’re not even sure if we can pronounce the name of this town correctly but it kinda sounds like “Oceana” in our heads.
5. Fluffy Landing
We hope there are a lot of fluffy birds that land at Fluffy Landing.
6. Lone Cabbage
Lone Cabbage is quite lonely since it is an island. Clever, people of Florida!
If you’re out of name ideas, why not name a town the same name as the state just with one less letter?
This town was called Lulu in 1891 because the postmaster’s love interest was named Lulu. Cue the “awwww”.
Funny story: In August 2018, the town was renamed Miracle Whip for an advertisement stunt with the brand.
I need more information to find Needmore! If you want to confuse your friends and family, tell them about this town.
We hope that every resident of this town in Florida is, indeed, nice!
This tiny town only has a population of 276 (as of July 1st, 2018) and not much is known about this town with the funny name.
Many residents of Florida must enjoy having a picnic at the Picnic Island Park!
14. Possum Bluff
Possum Bluff must be known for its possum population because why else would they call it this way?
Spuds got its name because this region of Florida depends on potatoes to survive economically. Spud is a name used to describe a small potato.
16. Tobacco Patch Landing
Not much is known about this town but we are guessing that there is a tobacco plantation or a factory, unless people love to smoke in this town.
What a festive sounding town name! This name comes from the language spoken by the Miccosukee Tribe and means “cowpen” or “cow barn”.
18. Two Egg
During the Great Depression, money was scarce so this town would trade farm products instead. Two boys came into a store with two eggs to trade them for sugar. The name stuck and the rest if history.
19. Weeki Wachee
Weeki Wachee, Seminole for “little spring” or “winding river”, is actually a tourist attraction because it holds the deepest naturally formed spring in the United States.
20. Yeehaw Junction
The town’s name is apparently called this way because locals would yell “Yeehaw!” a lot but it is most probably a name derived from the Seminole language, and means “wolf”.
